She's looking at you to find the hope she's lost

$24.25 provides a Day of Safe Shelter for one woman coming off the streets, eager for a different life.


She never asked to be devastated by homelessness

As a little girl, she never dreamed she'd fight these demons on the streets:

  • Danger
  • Drugs
  • Drinking
  • Violence
  • Disease
  • Despair

But they run rampant now on Skid Row, intensified by the cold, damp misery of winter.

She fights closing her eyes at night for fear of what could happen while she sleeps.  

She never wanted to be a statistic...

Skid Row is the epicenter of homelessness in America.

800+ women are without safe shelter on Skid Row.

"Homelessness on Skid Row is an epidemic of epic proportions. It is a Red Cross-like disaster."

— Rev. Andy Bales

CEO, Union Rescue Mission
