Kim Gordon in the community

“Venice has been my home for over 20 years and I have watched it grow. Coming from New York and San Juan, Puerto Rico, I found a soulful beach community where I could build my roots, a nest to make my two sons and my full life here. I believe in the original hippie Venice where artists – like myself — created works of art in various mediums in our homes, sitting on our front lawns or on the roof breathing in the fresh air and feeling the beach breeze. Investing in Venice was something my family did early on, and we continue to do so now.”

Kim Gordon is a proud supporter of these organizations

SPY: Safe Place for youth

This organization helps homeless people with meals and health services, but it goes beyond that: SPY also offers education and employment opportunities that help people to permanently exit homelessness and enter stable situations. Kim Gordon Designs is partnering with SPY on its latest project: A residential program for homeless women who are pregnant and/or have young children. KGD is currently designing, decorating and donating furnishings, sheets, towels and other supplies to a five-bedroom SPY home to make it a comfortable, functional and welcoming environment.


Homeless Task Force

Kim has worked closely with the Los Angeles Homeless Task Force in its efforts to address homelessness in Venice. Working with city officials, Kim is currently donating time and services in the effort to provide both temporary and permanent housing for the homeless.


The Teen Project

This Venice-based organization provides teens aging out of the foster care system with all of the resources and support of an intact family. They provide food, clothing and housing for teens. Additionally, they also provide college support and independent living education. This is an amazing organization that we’ve been honored support. Using our open houses as a platform to distribute information about the Teen Project, we have also donated over $20,000 to the organization, and look forward to more.
