The article traces the history of the Hebrew Sheltering Association of Los Angeles, California, formed in 1912 and now known as the Jewish Homes for the Aging. It has become one of the leading agencies that provide services for patriarchs and matriarchs of the Jewish community. Business meetings were held by the association, where officers were elected, and papers were incorporated. In 1913, articles about the association and its work appeared in newspapers. Donations were solicited to augment the inadequacy of the living quarters. Simon Lewis was the first known president of the association. In 1914, the Los Angeles Hebrew Sheltering Association was listed for the first time in the "Directory of Jewish Philanthropies," published in the Jewish press.
