House of Ruth is dedicated to the prevention of domestic violence and to ensuring the safety and well-being of those impacted by it
Los Angeles House of Ruth
LAHR has been providing life-saving domestic violence services for residents of eastern Los Angeles and western San Bernardino counties since 1977. Participation in House of Ruth programming is open to all battered women, men, and their children. All of House of Ruth’s programs are free of charge. There is no discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, age, language, disability, religion, national origin, medical condition, marital status, veteran status, or sexual orientation.
Programs & Services
The primary goal of Los Angeles House of Ruth is to empower women to move from abuse and dependency to independence and success. For more than 40 years, we have provided wrap-around services and shelter to over 5,000 women and children, with a remarkable 90% success rate at placing them into permanent housing!
Shelter & Housing
Our Shelter and Permanent Supportive Housing, in addition to our services and aftercare program, provide the necessary tools for our clients to gain independent living skills, keep their children off the streets, and sustain their families in permanent housing.
LAHR’s programs range from personalized case management and legal assistance to parent advocacy to therapy, as well as food and nutrition education making LAHR much more than just a homeless shelter.
Our care continues after families move out on their own through our unique After Care Program. Because situations can arise where a strong advocate is needed, we have a commitment to never turning an ex client away.
