Ascencia’s mission is to end homelessness in the Greater Glendale Area, one person, one family, at a time by providing an array of housing and support services that lead to greater self-sufficiency.

Kids at Ascencia

Our temple community has made a commitment to serve dinner on the first Sunday of each month as “Guest Chefs” at Ascencia’s emergency shelter in Glendale.

It is a wonderful experience for your chavurah, group of families, or any group of 5-8 people – organizing the dinner, preparing it at home or at temple, meeting at the shelter, and eating with the residents. It is always an interesting experience.

During the COVID shutdown we continue to provide meals by cooking them separately, safely, and dropping them off at the shelter.
