Help Fannie and others like her

This morning, Fannie and I were at the Downtown Women's Shelter (where she is a client) to announce HomeWalk, a 5K walk to raise funds for and awareness of local efforts to end homelessness. The walk will be held on November 17 in Exposition Park and is part of United Way of Greater Los Angeles's focused effort to prevent and end homelessness in L.A. County. Similar walks will also take place in other cities around the country.

Every night, thousands of adults and children sleep on our city's streets. Fannie has been one of them. HomeWalk is an opportunity for each of us to get involved in helping to end homelessness.
