  • Outside My Window
    encampment outside my window Wanting to know more about the situation I again asked Alisa if she knew anyone that could help She got me in touch with Caitlin DiMaina from Community Solutions and we scheduled to meet and take a walk through the alley The week before we were to meet the camp was torn down again by LAPD On Monday we took a walk through anyway just to see if there was anyone that could give us info on the people and their whereabouts We spoke to a gentleman that worked in one of the buildings but he seemed reluctant to get too involved As we walked Caitlin shared that she was familiar with Nouella the lady in the wheelchair Finally a name to a face I m happy I got involved because I feel that everyone deserves to be acknowledged and to know that someone cares about them Caitlin will be trying to help Nouella and her dog find permanent housing I hope that everything works out for both of them and the others It takes a village but one person can make a difference Jackie Berryhill a Receptionist at United Way of Greater Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce Facebook News
