Background Statement

Precious Life Shelter History & Development

Precious Life Shelter, Inc., was opened January 1, 1989, to provide a loving, home-like environment for the woman seeking to give birth to her child in a safe place.  Its purpose was to provide emergency and transitional housing, food, and immediate necessities for mother and baby.  Extended care housing, eventually called Single Parent Efficiency units, was opened in February 1991 and the Emergency Shelter in April1992.

Precious Life Shelter is a private, non-profit 501(c)3, non­ denominational  California  corporation.    Many of our volunteers come from churches and organizations in the surrounding communities.     Volunteers  assist  in  many  capacities,  such  as: publicity, fundraising, the Board of Directors, providing transportation, manning the telephone, maintaining the physical facilities,  doing  construction  work,  preparing  mailings,  office staffmg, in-health and education areas (doctors, dentists, nurses, counselors-MFCC, etc.), serving as mentors or birth coaches, Thrift Shop  volunteers,  Blow-Out  sale  volunteers,  interpreters,  baby clothes sorters, and more.  Currently, there are over 300 volunteers donating more than 50,000 hours annually.

The original property was purchased in July 1988.  It consisted of two houses that, after extensive renovation, were made ready for transitional housing.  The frrst house opened in January 1989 with a capacity for six women and two babies, plus living quarters for an unpaid house-manager.  At the end of 1989, the second house was opened.  It provided  room for four  more  women  and two more babies, enabling us to serve ten women and four babies.

At the end of 1989, we exercised an option to purchase the adjacent property for future development at a cost of $360,000.  Almost one­ third of an acre, this property would lend itself to our strategic plan for future development.  This secured piece of land consisted of a house  toward  the  front  of  the  property,  a  separate  small,  two­ bedroom house at the rear of the property,  and a storage garage. This  property  was subsequently  developed,  at various  stages,  to result in the Emergency Shelter (1992); the original Thrift and Gift Shop (1992); the Single Parent Efficiency units (1997); and The Sherrin House (2001).

The PLS Emergency Program was opened on April15, 1992. It has capacity for six women, and two babies, plus living quarters for a house-manager.  A $70,000 grant from the State of California, plus thousands of dollars worth of donated time and materials, allowed for the rehabilitation of the existing building into an Emergency Shelter. The generosity ofHomeAid Orange County (a non-profit corporation launched by the Orange County Building Industry Association to rehabilitate shelters for the homeless throughout the county) enabled the development of the Program far beyond the original vision of the founders of PLS. A joint effort with HomeAid made it possible to add a Thrift Shop on the property to help raise funds by selling items donated by members ofthe private sector. The builder captain on this project was SouthWest Diversified.

Our Single Parent Efficiency Program broke ground on July 7, 1997, and the first mom and infant moved in on January 1, 1998.  This residence replaced the small, two- bedroom house at the rear of the second property.  This two-story, 5000 square foot building now has five units on the top floor, each consisting of a bedroom, efficient kitchen, one bath, and a living and eating area. The ground floor was built out as four two-car garage units that are used as a pantry, thrift goods storage area, resident  recreation  area, and a classroom/computer area. This space could  be converted  back to garage units easily, if needed. Construction was done with the help of  HomeAid  Orange  County  and  a HUD  construction  grant for

$100,000; the builder captain was Warmington Homes.  This phase of the program has served as a model for HomeAid America to help other states develop similar type complexes for the needy.

In January 2000, the Thrift and Gift Shop was moved to a property located adjacent to the Shelter at 3622 Florista (the comer ofReagan and Florista).  The new store was expanded from our original 700 square feet to 2,100 square feet.  It has its own direct phone line at (562) 430-7309.  A receipt for tax purposes can be given for donations.  Additionally,  the second Saturday of each month, from

8a.m. to 3p.m., is the Blow-Out sale.


In 2000, construction began on The Sherrin House, a 12-bed transitional facility. Included in this renovation is a house manager's unit with bedroom, kitchen,  bath, and living room with a private entrance.  This building also includes an ADA approved unit for any Single Parent Efficiency resident that might have special needs. Our Precious Life Infant Care Facility is located on the bottom floor of the building and was licensed for six infants.  This 5000 square foot building replaces the old storage garage and original Thrift Shop. Once again, the building was constructed through coordination with HomeAid Orange County, and the builder captain was CENTEX HOMES.  The dedication for The Sherrin House was in November 2001.

About the Cherry Street Residences ‐ Serving Women and Children Located in the city of Los Alamitos, California, Cherry Street Residences will serve as an addition to Precious Life Shelter’s current program to aid pregnant women
experiencing homelessness. This brand new development consists of two buildings totaling approximately 4,500 square feet of living space, eight bedrooms, four full baths, four half baths, two kitchens, living and dining areas, garage, and more. Each phase of the Precious Life Shelter Program builds on the previous phase. Our graduates have had the challenge of finding an affordable place to live within a reasonable distance from their place of employment. Those that have found gainful employment while going through the Precious Life programs find themselves taking a huge risk by quitting their work and moving away. Precious Life will offer graduates of their Single Parent Efficiency program a permanent supportive housing program for themselves and their child at the Cherry Street Residences. These units will allow them to continuing working, parenting their child, and saving for the future while remaining in a drug and alcohol‐free environment. Cherry Street Residences will be the needed safe haven for these moms while acquiring the necessary skills to become independent. Residents will be expected to continue the case plan they developed while in the shelter program and achieve those goals and objectives for themselves and their children. The Cherry Street Residences will allow
women to become independent and self‐reliant.

The Cherry Street Residences (for women and children only) include:
‐ Reasonable and affordable rent
‐ Permanent supportive services
‐ Drug and alcohol‐free environment
‐ Continuation of case plan
‐ Residents must be employed full‐time
‐ Residents must provide their own transportation 

Impact Statement

We were able to reunite a mother with her 2 children.  She successfully parented, worked and enrolled in school.  She just recently moved to Pomona where she will be attending school
4 of our long term clients are working full time and 3 of them are enrolled in school and successfully parenting their child. 
Our transitional program clients are working part or full time and we are also able to get them into school.
  We are also working with our school District to get our women into public school so that they can work toward their High School Diploma.
Due to the need for low income housing our Board of Directors saw the need to re-evaluate our clients needs and determined that as an organization we could offer our clients the opportunity to continue to succeed by offering  them permanent housing.  We currently have 1 client in this program with one of the organizations goals is to purchase a property with a multi unit apartment building to continue to offer our clients the ability to go from homelessness to permanent housing.

Needs Statement

$ 5,000 Computers and software for 5 single parent efficiency units.  We need to update our computers as technology is always progressing.  These computers are used in the homes of our residents who are currently attending college.  They need a computer where they can do their school work at home.
$50,000.00 To assist residents for 1 yr. with child care needs.  Many of our residents work late night or weekend hours which can not be accommodated by traditional child are facilities, so they must go to independent providers.
In-Kind Donations ~ non perishable items ~ These are items that as a live-in residential program we have to purchase on a monthly bases for our clients needs (Toilet Paper, Paper towels, napkins, detergent, hygiene products, canned goods and cleaning supplies).
$7,200.00 for 1 year of Bus Pass needs:  Most of our women do not own a vehicle and rely on public transportation for school, work, job search or doctor's appointments.  PLS sees about 80 women per year and each woman averages at least 20 bus tickets per month depending on her stay with us.  Our average monthly bus ticket is 120 at $5.00 per ticket = $600.00 per month spent on transportation.

PLS Permanent Supportive Housing for Graduates of PLS Single Parent Efficiency Program ~

1 graduate of PLS Single Parent Efficiency Program moved into the 2 building 4 unit residential program on 6/1/2018.  Mother and child will be able to live in this residential program for an unlimited time as long as she works, is drug and alcohol free and continue with her set goals.

CEO Statement


Board Chair Statement

Precious Life Shelter is a phenomenal organization and has provided services to homeless adult pregnant women for 24 years. As a Board member for the past six years, and now the Chair of the Board, I have had an opportunity to see “behind” the scenes. Precious Life Shelter is committed to providing an environment designed to help homeless adult pregnant women become more independent and self-reliant while enhancing their self-worth. When asked of successes, I would have to say the young women and their babies tell our story. On March 2,, 2013 we held our fundraising gala, “An Affair of the Heart: Where Hope Happens”. The story of this event is not the money that we raised, but about past residents as successful women. Lina is a graduate of the Precious Life Shelter and now serves on the Board and is the chair of the “An Affair of the Heart” Committee. In addition, Lina is the Executive Director of the Youth Shelter located in  Los Alamitos. Lina is just one example of the “successes” of the shelter. There are many graduates making a difference in their communities.  

I volunteer at Precious Life Shelter because of the values of this organizations and feeling that I am making a difference by being part of something that allows people to change their lives.
