Welcome Home Project

The Welcome Home Project seeks to engage Angelenos in conversations about homelessness to educate them on the City’s solutions and mobilize them toward action. This project reminds us that homeless Angelenos are not statistics: they are people, with stories, families, and dreams of building a future. This is not only an opportunity for us to discuss homelessness in Los Angeles but also to TAKE ACTION and be part of the solution!

Individuals throughout Los Angeles who were previously unsheltered are moving into permanent housing soon! We need YOU to purchase new household items such as a set of dishes, bedding, kitchen-ware, personal hygiene items, and cleaning supplies prior to the gathering to assemble the basket. Laundry baskets make a great base in which to assemble items into for new apartment dwellers.

We will be setup at the West LA Farmers Market on July 31 from 10am to 1PM to have discussions and to collect the donation items. Below is a list of all the NEW items we need. Our goal is to assemble 25 baskets. To ensure that we get all the necessary items, please email Greg Ericksen at gericksen@wlanc.com with the items you can bring.

Here is a flyer for distribution.
