BENEFITING: My Friend's Place
I recently received news that a client that I spent weekly sessions in writing workshop crafting poems and prose with has passed away. I hope to fundraise at least $1,200 to honor the year I spent with the non-profit called My Friend's Place, located in Los Angeles, CA. It is where I served a year as a Jesuit Volunteer working as a Transformative Education Counselor.
ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
My Friend's Place has extended and enriched the lives of so many vulnerable youth looking for a safe community, family, and friends. It has served as a place for youth experiencing homelessness to work through their emotions, questions and create plans for their future.
Please invest some of your money to help to build upon those futures. Especially in a time where homelessness is on the raise both in California and nationally.
