In The News

From time to time, we’ll post articles relating to the lives of the homeless and hungry. With over 90,000 homeless in Los Angeles, and hundreds of thousands more nationwide, too often, media outlets highlight the few “bad eggs” among the group of people who are struggling to get by on a daily basis. That, in turn, skews public opinion, and fuels the opportunity for people to turn a blind eye to people who are desperately in need of help. Through the articles we post, we’ll try to provide unbiased information related to the homeless community, in an effort to raise awareness of the large need for help.
