As an Angeleno dedicated to serving and uplifting my community, I am happy to be apart of the solutions to end homelessness in LA! It is going to take the entire community to bring #everyonein, please donate today to help us continue this fight. Check out the clip below of yours truly speaking about HomeWalk and how you can get involved:
Did you know that Los Angeles County has one of the highest concentrations of homeless men, women and children living on the streets on any given night? In the most recent homeless count, it was reported that over 52,000 people are suffering in homelessness; includes over 3,800 veterans and over 21,000 women and children.
United Way’s core mission is to prevent and end homelessness and poverty in L.A. County. Our focus is to raise public awareness and mobilize everyone in the fight to provide the resources and support for housing solutions. Since launching HomeWalk 12 years ago, together, we have helped house 19,000 formerly homeless individuals and have influenced sweeping legislation for homeless solutions and prevention.
