They are people, just like you.

It’s a very lonely life when there’s no one to help boost you up when you’re down and get you back on your feet so that you can start helping yourself again.

WE BELIEVE NOBODY, ESPECIALLY CHILDREN AND YOUTH SHOULD NOT BE HOMELESS

OUR SOLUTION


It’s the right thing to do.

We are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization on a mission to treat, educate, and empower transitional aged homeless youth in South Los Angeles.Our vision is to build a national nonprofit coalition dedicated to the development of innovative, effective, and sustainable social service programs that prevents and treats homelessness

History
Established in 2013, Closed Eyes Open Heart recognized the need to provide basic needs and restore the livelihood of nearly 7,000 homeless transitional aged youth who reside in Service Provider Area (SPA) 6 of South Los Angeles. Closed Eyes Open Heart (C.E.O.H.) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization on a mission to alleviate youth homelessness in SPA 6 and through Los Angeles by enhancing their well-being and long-term lifestyle sustainability. We are committed to implementing innovative and effective programs to treat, educate, and empower transitional aged homeless youth between ages 16 and 24.
Values
With core values of trust, accountability, compassion, integrity, and community, we believe there is power in numbers. Our vision is to develop affordable housing complexes with onsite social service programs and an efficient national conglomerate committed to ending the homeless youth epidemic in Los Angeles by transforming preemptive protocols and providing access to a streamlined network of resources.

Lets end the cycle.

Closed Eyes Open Heart is working towards ending the cycles that affect the youths in Los Angeles experiencing homelessness.

We’re always willing to help those we care about when they need an extra hand. And it’s great when they’re willing to help us out and return the favor when we ask. But, what if you are homeless and can’t ask anyone for help because your family and friends have moved on without you or you’re mentally ill and actually can’t ask?
