Belles currently serve weekly at the six placements below.  Women sign up each week for the placements of their choice, and many make a commitment to remain consistent at a particular site for one semester.

Bread & Roses Café

Good Shepherd Shelter

Good Shepherd Shelter is a shelter for women and children who have escaped abusive environments.  GSS works to aid and give them resources for their transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency through various support and educational programs.  Belles serve by working with the children in their classrooms and helping them with their homework.

Lange Foundation

Women visit the Lange Foundation animal shelter in West Los Angeles to help maintain the facility by walking dogs and visiting with cats before they find their forever homes.  Socializing with the dogs and cats helps train them and increases their chances of being adopted.
