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, CA 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 our homeless families and adults to the generous corporations, organizations, and individuals who give to keep our doors open, we thank you. Join us in lifting up our community.
