Dear Friend,

This past Saturday, our family was blessed to participate in the virtual 5K Walk in our neighborhood. I'm thankful to have reached my personal goal of $1,000, but please don't let that stop you from donating to this worthy cause.

The 2020 LAHSA Homelessness Count was released this past Friday and the number of people experiencing homelessness jumped 13% in Los Angeles County to 66,433. Sadly, 75% of those people are unsheltered, living in cars, vans, RVs, tents, makeshift shelters or just out in the open air. People experiencing homelessness is out of control in Southern California!

Union Rescue Mission is one of the largest privately funded homeless shelters in the United States. They are also the only mission on Skid Row that NEVER turns away a single woman or family with children. In addition, they are currently fundraising to build a third facility for women and children in South LA. 

I sincerely appreciate your support and believe that together we can make a difference! 

Thank you!

Lorraine, I thought about doing the URM Virtual Walk as well, except lately I've been having back pain. I'm glad you are doing it though. :) Susan
