Eleven years ago, a few thousand Angelenos came together for HomeWalk and helped change lives for the better.
Los Angeles was struggling to stop homelessness from growing and needed a way to rally support. The first HomeWalk answered the call, proving that Angelenos could -- and would -- come together to rally and fight to end homelessness.
Today United Way continues to gather thousands to walk, raise awareness and to fundraise — because United, we can end homelessness in L.A. for good.
As a community, we’ve made significant strides in our mission to create pathways out of poverty in L.A. County: thousands of Angelenos have received the education, housing, and financial stability assistance they need to live better lives. While United Way has led the effort to raise nearly $5 billion in public funding to end homelessness, there’s still a lot to be done to get more than 57,000 Angelenos off the street. No man, woman, child, or veteran deserves to suffer at night. We have the resources to end this.
