  • HomeWalk
    housing memory was a four bedroom house with intergenerational and extended family members in each bedroom but even that was short lived due to a house fire Although my housing transitions were excessive and at times traumatic I was fortunate to always have a safe place to rest my head a place that I could call home with my family around me Not everyone is so lucky though I know that rarely when we think of the homeless we imagine entire families out on the streets but in reality homeless families comprise one third of the homeless population in our nation In honor of my family and other families similar to my own you are in my thoughts and I walk for you Why do you walk I walk for all families immigrant and native that have no home to go to or safe refuge in times of need Please visit www homewalkla org to register or give today in support of ending homelessness in LA Elizabeth Ul is a new United Way intern supporting Home for Good She is in her final year at UCLA studying for her Masters of Social Welfare Why I Walk Riley Beres October 28 2013 By admin Home for Good HomeWalk Riley Beres is a High School student Actress Comedian and Filmmaker She is the founder of Socks for Souls at 501 c 3 filed a non profit being developed to raise and provide socks and undergarments to the homeless population of Los Angeles With her friend Jimmy Deshler she created a documentary to raise awareness of the many faces of homelessness in LA lend usa One day my friend Jimmy and I delivered cans to a shelter and I met a man who said to me I am homeless here in North Hollywood and I am hoping things will change in my life It was so sincere and gentle I realized that man is part of someone s family Growing up I was never able to meet or know my mom s father I had only heard stories about him He fell under hard times and eventually became homeless After 22 years my mom was reunited with her father my grandfather and we enjoyed 5 precious years before he passed He had through the help of resources re established his life but lost touch with her because she had moved So many people believe that homelessness is defined by individuals sitting on street corners due to drugs or alcohol and yes there is that part of the population that we see but there are so many unseen individuals and families There is also the issue of how mental illness loneliness and depression can eventually lead to self medication My age group to 25 in particular are a growing population as well as families our future generation No one says When I grow up I want to be homeless Not everyone has given up on society life events happen lack of support happens illness

  • Today’s Inspiration
    with things to know before applying for a personal loan I felt better after my visit inside of LAMP The shelter had a warm safe feel to it I sat in the lobby with some of the residents watching a movie in the reception area while I waited to meet with Maribel Gutierrez Director of Operations The impression I got from the residents was that they were grateful to be here Maribel gave me a tour of the facility and I continued to feel impressed with the cleanliness of the facility with the programs they offer it s residents and with the care displayed by all of the staff I observed with their interactions with it s residents This was when I noticed the HomeWalk 2014 poster and remembered that I wanted now more than ever to make a donation to one of our staff who was going to take time from her busy schedule to walk the walk my supervisor Debi Wood http homeforgoodla com cache sainsbury s personal loan html As I returned to my car after the visit I took a drive through these impoverished areas of downtown LA and wondered how a city so wealthy and vibrant could have such a large number of people with no place of their own How so many of these mostly men but also women could be enjoying their lives with family and friends But for whatever reasons they were now living in the streets Fortunately there IS hope LAMP community represents one of these hopes But a lot more can be done While listening to the presentations at this mornings All Staff Meeting I thought about how fortunate my life has been My family was poor but when there was not enough food we could always count on our extended family or neighbors to give us food on cousins to give us their outgrown clothes and on the care and help of the schools where I was able to get enough free aid to go to college and move on with my life So many of the people I met on my brief visit to skid row have not had these types of fortunes fall their way Times have changed So it is up to people like us to help out when and where we can I feel fortunate that I was able to make this donation Hopefully others as fortunate will feel the same way and pass it along Leave a Reply Cancel reply Send Us Message Full Name Email Address Website Message You may use these HTML tags and attributes a href title abbr title acronym title b blockquote cite cite code del datetime em i q cite s strike strong SEND MESSAGE About H ome For Good is an Action Plan to end chronic and veteran homelessness in L A County by 2016 The plan was launched in December 2010 by the Business Leader s Task Force on Homelessness a partnership of United Way of Greater
