TESTIMONIALS

I feel like a better man every time after I leave here. I really feel like I am part of a family that cares about me.
— Guest at Woodland Hills location
We’re living on food stamps. These meals are the best meals we get all week. It gets me away from the stress of everything that I am going through and I love all the people here...I’m getting all emotional talking about it. I can’t thank New Friends enough for all they do.

About New Friends Homeless Center

Healing Hearts Physically And Spiritually Worldwide.

New Friends Homeless Center was first conceived in 2010 when Pastor April Belt witnessed first hand the need for resources for the growing homeless population in her neighborhood of Woodland Hills, CA.

On Thanksgiving day she stopped to give food and to talk with a homeless man. He shared that he used to live in downtown LA on Skid Row. Since it was so dangerous, he felt the need to move to a safer area in the San Fernando Valley. Unlike Skid Row where shelters, medical and treatment clinics are found centrally located within several square miles of the city, he was finding that resources in the San Fernando Valley for the homeless community were scarcely available. It was increasingly hard to find a free meal. The encounter profoundly impacted Pastor April and sent her on a journey to fulfill a basic need of feeding the many homeless within her community of Woodland Hills.
