  • Our Team
    Loans With Cosigner What did you think about homelessness in Los Angeles before starting your internship I wasn t aware of the homelessness problem in LA until I moved here last September for Grad school About a week after I moved here I started realizing just how many people were living on the streets Before I started my internship I thought the only thing preventing homeless individuals in L A from moving off the streets was the lack of affordable housing Have your perceptions changed since beginning your internship After starting my internship I began to realize that homelessness is not a small problem that can be addressed by helping one homeless individual at a time but rather it is a larger systemic problem that will continue infinitely unless we can change the systems currently sustaining homelessness I realized that while lack of affordable housing is a problem it is only part of the problem I now am learning that there are so many hoops homeless individuals have to jump through before they can even acquire the limited affordable housing that is available I am also learning that there are many people who are working to end homelessness but there are not enough people working together My focus on ending homelessness has not changed but my understanding of the system homelessness operates in has changed dramatically since starting my internship What is it like to work with the Home For Good team Well obviously I m going to say it s amazing Really though it has been a wonderful experience getting to know and working with everyone on the Home For Good team I was not expecting to have such a great experience with an internship but everyone has been so welcoming willing to help and so supportive I will never be able to fully express my respect gratitude to and appreciation of the people I work with The individuals on this team are incredibly dedicated and hard working they drive me to be better and I am inspired by every person on the team every day I come into the office Honestly there has never been a day that I did not want to come to work and in reality I look forward to the days I get to go into the office and be reminded of why I went back to school Working here I get to see first hand that it is possible to make the world a better place because the people on this team are doing just that every single day If someone wrote a song about you what would be the title Dreamer trying to live in reality MEET MELISSA THE FACE BEHIND OUR SOCIAL MEDIA September 20 2011 By admin Our Team I was born and raised in Los Angeles a city with over 51 000 homeless individuals It was impossible to grow up in the homeless capital of the nation and not encounter people living on the streets While I was always
