VOALA currently provides more than 1,500 units of affordable permanent housing for individuals and families, and over 350 units of emergency and transitional housing. We are currently developing subsidized housing for veterans and their families to meet the rising need as soldiers return from service.


Volunteers of America is one of the largest non-profit providers of quality, affordable housing nationwide. We see affordable housing as a key component in our continuum of care. Rents are intentionally kept low so that people have a chance to save and eventually buy homes of their own.  


We help prevent homelessness in Los Angeles by offering over 1,500 affordable permanent housing units especially suited to the ELDERLY AND WORKING PARENTS WITH CHILDREN. Complexes are located throughout Greater Los Angeles in Long Beach, North Hollywood, Santa Monica, Silverlake, and Sunland.


Individuals and families are provided with CLEAN, SAFE, AND AFFORDABLE housing and VITAL SUPPORT SERVICES AND ACTIVITIES. We offer our residents after school programs, transportation to medical appointments, and training for those with developmental disabilities.

Ballington Plaza provides 270 subsidized housing units for veterans, graduates of substance abuse programs, people with disabilities, former Skid Row residents, and the working poor. This facility provides multiple support services to its residents and has a beautifully landscaped courtyard and comfortable community areas making Ballington Plaza an OASIS IN THE HEART OF SKID ROW.


All VOALA housing is operated in compliance with all local, state, and federal fair housing laws. Housing is offered without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, religion, ancestry, genetic information, source of income, age, marital status, familial status, sexual orientation or preference, gender identity, or disability, or any other basis prohibited by law.

A person with a disability may request a reasonable accommodation (a reasonable change in policies), a reasonable structural modification, an accessible unit or the provision of auxiliary aids and services, in order to have equal access to a housing opportunity.  If you or anyone in your household has a disability, and because of that disability requires a specific accommodation, modification or auxiliary aids or services to fully use our housing services, please contact the relevant housing program for more information on accommodation requests.
