SKID ROW CARNIVAL OF LOVE'S mission is to transform the way our community responds to the needs of individuals and families experiencing homelessness. We are building a community of organizations that are working towards the same goal as us: to break the cycle of homelessness. We aim to unify existing communities by creating unique experiences that uplift, empower, and enhance the lives of those who are experiencing homelessness. The Skid Row Carnival of Love (SRCOL) connects people to resources that provide continued support through their journey out of homelessness.
SRCOL is an initiative, founded by Justin Baldoni in 2015, that shines a light on the often times forgotten people of Los Angeles who are experiencing homelessness in, or around, Skid Row. SRCOL is Los Angeles’ fastest growing community event benefiting and celebrating those currently experiencing homelessness. For one day, there is no us or them. No rich or poor. It’s simply about unconditional love and coming together as a community.
On January 27th, 2018, we come together to create a carnival tailor-made for the beautiful people of Los Angeles who are experiencing homelessness. The carnival offers career opportunities, DMV I.D. cards, educational programs, legal and housing services, as well as physical, mental, and dental health care, fun and games, dancing, donations, haircuts, feet washing, good food, and great friends help us transform Skid Row into a world of sincere connection, love, and hope.
We are raising money for the 2018 SRCOL, as well as the expansion of the SRCOL program, and our new website! More information and details coming soon on how to sign up to volunteer and how to get involved.
Love Much Always, Team Skid Row Carnival of Love
