Meeting Needs and Making Whole

We long to see broken people made whole, which we pursue by being a bridge to the help they need


Holistic Support for the Unseen among Us

We feed the hungry and long to witness broken people made whole again. Serve LA…

Our goal is to be more than a meal, more than a shower, more than any of our services—but a ministry where we witness countless examples of how the compassion of Jesus changes everything.

Vision & Mission


Serve LA is seeking the renewal of Los Angeles by guiding the marginalized from suffering to flourishing and equipping others to do the same in their own neighborhoods.


We serve Los Angeles by providing meals, recovery, and holistic support to the unseen among us in the city.



A Story of Hope

In 1997, the church Hope International Bible Fellowship began receiving bread from Trader Joe’s and distributing it to the most marginalized people in Hollywood. By 2010, the 82-year-old church was providing a recovery ministry, collecting donated food from multiple local grocery stores, and distributing over four million dollars of food to the community every year. In 2018, God led Hope to join the younger Reality Church of Los Angeles and entrust Hope’s properties to them as a way for the ministry to continue its legacy of serving the surrounding community. The Hope church building became known as the Hope Center. By 2022, Serve LA (a ministry of Reality LA) was operating out of the Hope Center, ensuring it continues to be a place for holistic renewal in the heart of Los Angeles where outcasts are brought in, the wounded are made whole, and the hopeless find hope. The scope of that mission has grown to seek the flourishing and renewal of our entire city..
