Jovenes, Inc.

The Mission of Jovenes, Inc. is to help homeless youth and at-risk families become productive and integrated members of the community. We provide comfortable, stable housing, access to life skills training, employment support and other community-based services in a safe, nurturing environment. Believing anyone can prosper given the right conditions, we deliver opportunities for personal growth and provide hope, comfort and support where once there was none. We empower those we serve so that they can develop healthy relationships and make meaningful contributions to the community we share.
Founded in 1989 by Father Richard Estrada, Jovenes serves homeless youth regardless of race, religion or sexual orientation. Located in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, our subsidized housing model includes supportive short term and permanent housing that is designed to create a home-like atmosphere for those we serve. Together they learn, grow and transform.

We are Jovenes. We provide support for youth experiencing homelessness, so they can lead productive & independent lives.

Jovenes, Inc. Empowers Youth to Succeed. Throughout Los Angeles, there are numerous organizations that serve youth. One of the qualities that distinguishes Jovenes, Inc. is our focus on housing homeless and at-risk transition-age youth, specifically those between the ages of 18-24. We are one of very few service providers in our geographic area that offers a full range of safety-net and supportive services for this population. The youth we serve come from all walks of life while facing many daunting challenges, but have severely limited options in terms of supportive resources and are often left to fend for themselves. Whether they recently emancipated from the foster care system, were separated from their families, immigrated to the US, are on probation, fleeing from domestic violence, or have been living on the streets, one thing is clear; they need their community’s support to succeed. Yet, in spite of all the obstacles they confront, our youth prove time and time again to be hopeful, energetic, full of potential, and committed to improving their lives. In order to meet this drive, Jovenes, Inc. employs a continuum of care throughout our shelters. This means that we seek to holistically meet the needs of our youth, ensuring that they live in a safe and supportive environment that encourages them to define and meet their personal goals, to receive educational training, to find and maintain good jobs, and to have a healthy transition into adulthood.
