Dear Friend,

The COVID-19 Pandemic has created a true CRISIS for people experiencing homelessness in Southern California! In Los Angeles County alone, the homeless population is nearing 59,000 people, with 44,000 of them living in cars, vans, RV's, tents or just out in the open air. We cannot leave people on the streets like this, especially with this ruthless disease spreading like wildfire! CAN YOU PLEASE HELP?

The Union Rescue Mission is stepping up to meet the need and will not turn away anyone from our doors! URM is the only Skid Row organization who welcomes children and families, NO MATTER WHAT!

This cause is very dear to me and I'm trying to make an impact by participating as a "Virtual Walker", since the city will not allow 1,200 people to walk in unity on May 23rd. This is due to the Coronavirus Crisis and official requirements for "Social Distancing."

Union Rescue Mission is the largest privately funded homeless shelter 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 moms, dads and their kids in South LA. 

Can you please help join the cause and make a donation to my campaign today? Or join me as a "Virtual Walker" at

I truly appreciate your support! Together, we can make a difference! 

Thank you!
