Congratulations Santa Monica Tourism Community!

Westside Shelter & Hunger Coalition (WSHC) honored our Santa Monica Tourism Community at WSHC’s 14th annual Celebrating Success Breakfast, on October 29, 2010. The coalition presented their 2010 Partnership Award to the local tourism industry for exemplary hospitality for those in need. The industry’s generosity to WSHC member agencies included financial and in-kind support for providing employment for the homeless and low-income clients and for the strong support of the SuperBowl-A-Thon fundraiser.

WSHC expressed their gratitude to the hospitality community for its continuing commitments and for working with the coalition on solutions for, and changing the face of, homelessness in our community. “Our local hospitality industry has demonstrated ‘hospitality’ for those in need as well as for visitors from across the world who enjoy our world-class destination”, said OPCC Executive Director and WSHC Chair John Maceri.

About Westside Shelter & Hunger Coalition
The Westside Shelter & Hunger Coalition (WSHC) is an alliance of over 30 organizations, public agencies and faith communities committed to ending hunger and homelessness through service coordination, public education and advocacy.

WSHC is a non-profit volunteer organization that operates under the administrative umbrella of Community Partners.  We were founded in 1982 to serve the Westside of Los Angeles County, and are the oldest coalition in the county working on behalf of the homeless.  Throughout our history, the WSHC has proven to be an effective tool in providing high-quality programs and services for those in need in our community.

Although individual agencies have the ability to provide separate services for people in need, the efforts of the WSHC help coordinate all services on the Westside in order to provide a true continuum of service care for the community.  Members work together to provide services that include initial intake and service referrals; showers, food and clothing; on-going case management; emergency, transitional and permanent housing; medical care; mental health treatment; HIV medical and social services; job training and placement; and substance abuse treatment.  Member agencies have been instrumental in Santa Monica’s chronic homeless project, as well as continuing to advocate for low income and homeless people at the local, state and national levels.
