More than 51,000 men, women and children in Los Angeles County have no place to call home. That’s more than the population of the city of Cerritos!
More and more, the face of homelessness includes families, seniors and veterans. Nationwide, as many as 1 in 4 homeless people once served our country in the military. And 1 in 45 children are homeless, the most ever in U.S. recorded history.
The good news is . . . homelessness isn’t hopeless.
The world may have given up on the homeless people we are working to reach, but God hasn’t! And we don’t give up either. Through our Transitional Housing Program, Skid Row Outreach, our Food Chapel and other ministries, lives are transforming. Many we reach out to are enrolling in our yearlong Discipleship Program and finding a path to a new productive life serving Jesus.
