The Pacific Palisades Task Force on Homelessness (PPTFH) relies upon five committees of community volunteers to achieve its goal of addressing the destructive consequences of homelessness in the Palisades.

Communications Committee

The Communications Committee oversees, coordinates, and conducts all task force communications which include PPTFH’s community meetings/webinars, website, newsletter, print materials, public information announcements and media and community relations.

Fundraising Committee

The Fundraising Committee’s role is to raise funds to insure PPTFH’s financial viability.  The Committee welcomes and maintains Funding Partner donors for 3-year commitments, applies for community and foundation grants, and annually solicits individual donations within the community.  When appropriate, the Committee solicits and coordinates in-kind donations.

Volunteer Committee

The Volunteer Committee seeks out and encourages our Palisades community of neighbors, places of worship, and organizations who believe in the mission of PPTFH to volunteer on one of the PPTFH committees or to support our mission in any way they can. The Committee also requests, receives and organizes donated items, such as hygiene kits, that can be used to engage with homeless individuals.
