Welcome To Ascencia

Ascencia has provided housing and services to over 12,000 homeless individuals and families since 2006.  Our Access Center located at 1851 Tyburn Street in Glendale, California is the heart of our organization. Our soul is the thousands of volunteers, donors, and sponsors that enable our work. 

From the guest chefs who prepare and serve hot meals, to the generous corporations, organizations, and individuals who give to keep our doors open, we thank you. Your efforts help us break down the barriers that contribute to homelessness, and rebuild the lives of over 1,000 individuals and families every year. Join us in lifting up our community.
