2023 Nonprofit & Corporate Citizenship Awards Honoree: NONPROFIT OF THE YEAR (LARGE)


Weingart Center Association is a recognized leader in delivering innovative solutions to break the cycle of homelessness for Angelenos. Since 1984, Weingart Center Association has provided individuals experiencing homelessness with a comprehensive network of interim housing and supportive services.

In response to Los Angeles’ pervasive homelessness crisis, the organization has nearly doubled its interim housing capacity since 2019 and launched an ambitious permanent supportive housing pipeline. During its 2021-22 program year, Weingart Center Association served roughly 15,000 individuals through its programs and services, which are designed to help Los Angeles’ most vulnerable homeless adults access shelter, receive the support they need to stabilize their lives, and secure permanent housing.

Among the programs offered include emergency services; interim housing; clinical services; medical and mental health care; reentry programs; and education and employment support. Weingart Center Association is led by retired Senator Kevin Murray. Since becoming president & CEO in 2011, Senator Murray has leveraged his experience in both business and government to transform

Weingart Center Association from a single site focusing on shelter and crisis services in Skid Row to a multi-community provider that currently operates six interim housing sites throughout Downtown Los Angeles and Hollywood, has built and now operates its first-ever permanent supportive housing site in West Los Angeles, and has a pipeline of nine affordable housing developments totaling over 1,300 new units of housing for low-income and very-low-income individuals and families throughout Los Angeles. Supporting Senator Murray in developing and executing an ambitious strategic plan are Weingart Center Association’s Board of Directors, which is comprised of 17 committed and diverse leaders.
