Friends in Deed is an interfaith organization that provides supportive services to meet basic human needs, so our homeless and at-risk neighbors can rebuild their lives.

2018 Pasadena Homeless Count

The 2018 Pasadena Homeless Count will take place on Jan. 23 & 24, 2018. 140 volunteers are needed to help gather important and necessary information on our homeless brothers and sisters in the community. If you would like to volunteer for this important event, click HERE.

Our New Refrigeration Van

On Friday, October 20, our brand new refrigeration van arrived.  Getting this van is courtesy of The Ahmanson Foundation. Their generosity in providing us with the funds for the van will open many doors for us. Especially as it relates to transporting foods that need to be kept cold.  We can’t even begin to tell everyone how exciting this is for us.  Thank you, The Ahmanson Foundation, for your making this possible.

Friends In Deed PSA
