Meet Our Executive Director

Angie Pacheco joined The House of Yahweh as our Executive Director on July 3, 2017. Ms. Pacheco's career spans more than 30 years with a strong background in program administration, social services and philanthropy in support of the poor and homeless. Program experience included housing, health care, child development program administration. She has extensive leadership experience experience on community service boards and committees.

2017 is Our 35th Year of Service to the Community

 

The needs of the poor are as pressing as ever and the House of Yahweh will continue to stretch our resources to help feed, clothe and shelter more of our neighbors in South Bay Los Angeles. It is a big job but together with our patrons, sponsors, donors, staff and volunteers we will deliver the help needed by the poor and disadvantaged of our community. If you are not already a part of the miracle that is the House of Yahweh, then we have a place for you where you can make a huge difference; join us today!

 

We are blessed to receive thousands of dollars worth of gifts in kind (merchandise) every Monday through Saturday from generous supermarkets, restaurants, retail businesses and private citizens in the local area.   We run our two Thrift Shops almost totally with slightly used items. Each day our staff and volunteers process and activate (sort, clean, repair) these gifts in kind so they can be given to the poor in our Food Outreach, Clothing Outreach and Transitional Shelter Programs. This processing takes cash for wages, vehicle repair and maintenance, gas, utilities, insurance and many other expenses necessary to deliver our charitable services. Gifts in kind we have but cash is always scarce.

 

Every month in 2017 the House of Yahweh dipped into our savings to pay our bills. We get generous cash donations but it is never enough. If you are already a donor and you are able to increase your support then we pray you will do so. If you are not a donor we need you to join us and give what you can.

 

We will continue to work hard to keep the House of Yahweh’s infrastructure maintained and operating efficiently.  Our overhead rate in 2016 was 5%; 95 cent of every dollar donated went to support the poor and homeless. We need volunteers with a wide range of capabilities and experiences to serve our mission. People with office administration, retail store, advertising, grant writing, delivery/transportation, construction, operations management, human resource management, information technology and web development experience are just a few examples of our volunteer force needs. Whatever your talent we have a place for you in our mission. Your volunteer service will make a very positive impact in the lives of others and the experience will enrich your life as well. Come join our mission of service.

 

Please call me at the House of Yahweh and talk about joining our team of donors and volunteers.

A Message from Angie Pacheco, Executive Director

 

The House of Yahweh has been serving your poor neighbors in South Bay Los Angeles for 35 years; your support of this mission  makes this possible. Feeding the hungry, providing clothing and household goods to the poor or helping the homeless to improve their lives is the service we offer to our community.

 

Today we are at a crossroad in our service to the poor. Our financial outlook is bleak unless we can substantially increase cash donations. Please help us to continue the House of Yahweh's good works by making a monthly cash donation; small amounts are fine but we need many new donors all helping to keep the mission going. Thank you.
