Ascencia

Glendale, CA
$250,000
December 2014

Ascencia has embarked on its first capital campaign to raise $7.45 million to provide a new facility to house its Access Center and Emergency Housing program, add permanent supportive housing for homeless families and individuals, and strengthen its service delivery.  Currently, Ascencia serves 1,200 people annually, including 200 in its emergency shelter.  The campaign will enable the organization to serve more people in its shelter program and reduce the time clients take to move from homelessness to housing from 72 to 45 days.  It will also allow Ascencia to expand its geographic reach from the greater Glendale/Burbank area into new communities and broaden the continuum of care to achieve greater impact.  The Foundation’s grant will help complete renovation of the new Access Center.
