South Bay Homeless Count

A Point in Time Count of homeless neighbors in the South Bay will occur on Wednesday, January 25, 2017.  The purpose of the count is to assess the scope of homeless in the South Bay.  It is not to engage nor assist at this point but to provide information needed to address the problem.

As many of the homeless are persons with a mental illness, NAMI South Bay is working with the South Bay Coalition to End Homeless to recruit volunteers on this count.

Special Bulletin: NAMI South Bay Partnership with Palos Verdes Resale Thrift Shop

NAMI South Bay is very pleased to announce a partnership with the Palos Verdes Resale Thrift Shop at 2321 Pacific Coast Highway in Lomita. The PV Resale Thrift Shop is an organization of approximately a dozen charitable organizations whose members volunteer time to work in the thrift shop. Based on the number of hours each charitable organization members work in the thrift shop the organization receives a proportionate amount of the surplus created.

The partnership will allow NAMI South Bay to generate funds for needed programs in more parts of the South Bay and has the added benefit of networking with other charitable organizations while providing low cost items to the community. There will be a brief training session for any volunteers. Please contact Paul Stansbury at or 310-892-8046 if you are interested in volunteering to work for a few hours a month.
