Upward Bound House presents the 5th Annual Home Run For Kids, a community fundraiser in West Los Angeles. The event draws crowds of community members and over 1,200 registered runners and walkers. It will be a great morning of exercise, food and fun! All proceeds will go towards helping homeless families and their children transition into permanent homes.
The mission of Upward Bound House is to eliminate homelessness among families with children in Los Angeles by providing housing, supportive services, and advocacy. Upward Bound House has established an extraordinary record of success in addressing family homelessness. Since 1997, we have helped more than 1,100 families including over 2,000 children to transition from homelessness and into permanent housing. Over 95% of these families were still in their homes more than a year after placement.
