Our Solution

We will have close to 200 volunteer shifts on Oct 3 at many locations across Los Angeles. At each location, volunteers will work in shifts, encouraging shoppers to donate to C.E.O.H via in person and online giving. We will provide our volunteers with the tools to succeed – training, C.E.O.H t-shirts and goodies to provide to individuals who donate.

Closed Eyes Open Heart volunteers and staff are caring and polite, they really work for their clients and it’s great to know this City has this resource in such a localized area. This is exactly what the homeless of Los Angeles needs more of, a listening ear in a non-judgemental environment.

Erin Thompson

Executive Director, The "s" word project

Each time I attend one of these events, it brings me greater satisfaction. My sense of involvement in the community is growing, and my previous stereotypes of homeless people are breaking down. When you attend a Closed Eyes Open Heart event, you aren’t repeating the same old interaction where people on the street are asking you for money. I’ve had wonderful interactions with many, and those interactions are reshaping my ideas about homelessness and fueling a deeper interest in related issues.

Executive Director CSUDH Innovation Incubator

I volunteer for this organization and I love to see how much they are helping the participants. This is an amazing organization full of passionate people who care and work to make a difference in individuals lives.

Founder and Spiritual Director, Agape International Spiritual Center

Never has serving the community been so much fun. I do this once a month when possible. A good friend Jason M. ” you can hit me up for contact info if you want to volunteer.” runs a wonderful thanksgiving  dinner service here.
You don’t need to have any skills other than a willing heart and a few hours to give up. Not only will you make some wonderful friends you’ll feel great about helping a worthy cause.
