What Is LifeKit?

LifeKit is a 501c3 based in Koreatown, Los Angeles, whose main purpose is to alleviate the burden of the homeless population and create community consciousness amongst all stakeholders. Our organization is named after the LifeKits that we hand out because we believe granting individuals dignity through these basic hygiene items is an immediate necessity. A LifeKit can contain many different types of items depending on the campaign and the wants and needs of the community we are serving. They can be comprehensive survival kits for 7 or 10 days or contain all the essential school supplies needed for kids to go to school and learn effectively. To learn more about specific LifeKits check out our kits page.
