Service members returning from active duty may look for faith based practices as they reintegrate into civilian life. Real Life Church provides an excellent resource, especially for veterans without homes.

We know veterans are at higher risk for homelessness based on various factors, including injuries and trauma sustained while on deployment. For homeless veterans, Real Life Church has a lot of resources. Their mission includes offering outreach for the homeless. Every month, they bring a portable shower unit for guests to take a hot shower. They receive donations of clothing, food, hygiene supplies, coats, blankets, and other supplies. Real Life Church brings hair stylists to offer homeless guests haircuts. They even offer a supply of brand new shoes.

Volunteers provide support and an opportunity for conversations of faith. Attending Real Life Church’s homeless outreach is a great time for homeless veterans in the Santa Clarita area to explore faith and find resources and supplies.

If you or a veteran you know in Santa Clarita is experiencing homeless, make sure they know about Real Life Church. Every Monday night, they provide a place and an opportunity for those in need of assistance.
