HomeWalk Heroes

HomeWalkers become heroes for housing in L.A.

  •  HomeWalk Heroes raise $500 or more to help move thousands of homeless men, women and children into permanent supportive housing.
  • In 2013, UWGLA’s HomeWalk Heroes, who accounted for only 1% of all participants, managed to collect 40% of all funds raised ($200,000)!

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.
