HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

This helps youth experiencing homelessness have the appropriate gear to protect them during the pandemic. 

DESCRIPTION

Safe Place for Youth was founded in 2011 by a group of dedicated volunteers and Founder/Executive Director Alison Hurst, offering hot food, clothing and socks to homeless youth in Venice Beach from their cars. Since those humble beginnings, we've been driven to give youth opportunities to transform by multiplying our services, building our programming and strengthening our partnerships. With incredible support from Board Members, donors, volunteers and partner organizations, SPY has grown from a 100% volunteer-led organization to a professional staff of 55 employees, whose skill set have strengthened our programs. 

Our youth are in need of masks so that they can stay healthy on the streets of Los Angeles as we provide intervention services to youth experiencing homelessness. 


ITEMS NEEDED

SOCKS!  LOTS OF SOCKS!  PLEASE, use new/unused socks!
