Welcome to Resident
We are a socially responsible clothing company with the goal of making an impact on the homelessness crisis in Los Angeles. Our founder has always worked in the fashion industry by trade and started volunteering with the homeless in college. She learned a lot about how complex the problem is in Los Angeles and wanted to do more. Even though she is passionate about fashion, she felt frustrated working in an industry that was only producing material items. She decided to combine her two passions and create a fashion brand with purpose embedded in its DNA.
Resident was created to be a social impact brand with a straightforward approach. Los Angeles has one of the highest and most mismanaged homelessness populations in the country and we have set out to do what we can to make a difference. Through our revolving donation model, we donate to various homelessness organizations with every release of a new product. We are transparent with our customers about how much of their purchase goes towards the specific cause. We also keep customers updated through our impact page where they can track our fundraising live. We continue to update our customers via email on the effects their donations have on the community.
As a small business, we are continuing to learn and grow with our customers. We hope you can come along on this journey with us and help make a difference in people’s lives.
