Usually at this time of year Be Kind would be throwing its annual holiday Benefit concert - AKA the Party Of The Year- in support of our favorite women's transitional shelter Alexandria House!
This year, as you may have noticed, things are a little bit different and whilst we can't 'get the Be Kind band back together' in person, we also couldn't put you through another awkward live streamed event! So instead, this year, we are hosting Christmas day AT Alexandria House.
We'll be organizing food, presents and hopefully a very generous donation!
That's where you guys come in... Please, if you have the means this year, no matter how large or small
The power of community is REAL and we believe that we ALL have the ability to create magic even in 2020!

About Alexandria House:
Founded in 1996, Alexandria House is a transitional residence and house of hospitality. We provide safe and supportive housing for women and children in the process of moving from emergency shelter to economic stability and permanent housing. Located in the densely populated and ethnically diverse Mid-Wilshire area of Los Angeles, we also serve our broader neighborhood community by providing educational and enrichment opportunities for our neighbors as well as our residents.
In response to the compelling needs of the women and children living in Alexandria House, as well as the neighborhood needs before us each day, our goal is to be a community-oriented transitional house and neighborhood center. We are intentionally multicultural and anti-racist, and the needs of women who are economically poor are at the center of our commitment. We are blessed to be supported by a community of caring individuals and groups who share our mission.
More than 92% of the women who have moved through the Alexandria House program have succeeded in securing financial stability and permanent housing.
