Living among the great wealth of Los Angeles, many fail to see the mammoth and increasing needs of many in our midst. For the economically poor in our area, HopeNet’s network of food pantries and meal programs are a primary source of nourishment required to meet daily needs. Since our inception, we have served over 3 million persons.
In 1988, a network of Los Angeles area congregations founded HopeNet to address hunger and homeless needs. First opening in the Wilshire Center area of Los Angeles, and now encompassing Koreatown, Hollywood, Los Feliz, and Silverlake, HopeNet is an independent 501(c)3 charitable agency.
In 1996, HopeNet founded HopeWest Apartments to provide excellent 3-bedroom apartment units for 17 low income families. Guided by our dedicated Board of Directors and sustained through the tireless efforts of many dedicated volunteers at our 12 food pantries, HopeNet touches lives daily and offers hope and opportunities to thousands of individuals and families.
