HOMEWALK HEROES

  • HomeWalk Heroes raise $500 or more to help move thousands of homeless men, women and children into permanent supportive housing.
  • In 2012, UWGLA’s HomeWalk Heroes, who accounted for only 1% of all participants, managed to collect 48% of all funds raised!

Simply by raising $500, we can:

  • Give three homeless job seekers a competitive edge with employment workshops designed to strengthen their interviewing and workplace skills.
  • Provide short-term relief to a homeless individual in the form of safe housing, regular meals and a network of supportive services.
  • Offer one homeless family a fresh start by securing permanent housing and helping to cover their first month’s rent, utilities, furniture, groceries and supplies.

All 2013 HomeWalk Heroes will receive:

  • A HomeWalk baseball cap to wear at the event (and all year-round) to demonstrate our commitment to eradicating homelessness in L.A. County;
  • An exclusive invitation to the HomeWalk 2014 Kickoff Breakfast; and
  • A chance to win valuable, one-of-a-kind Kobe Bryant memorabilia!
