People experiencing homelessness is a huge problem in Southern California. In Los Angeles County alone the homeless population is now over 58,000 people, with a staggering 111% increase in families experiencing homelessness at Skid Row.
I'm trying to make an impact by participating in this Virtual 5k Walk to Fight Homelessness on Saturday and Sunday, June 13 and 14.
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. And the Rev. Andy Bales works tirelessly for this cause.
How about registering for and participating in the event? If you would rather join the cause by making a donation to my campaign, that would be great as well.
Rev. Bales would truly appreciate all the support.
