At the Los Angeles Mission, we know the importance of hope. Hope is the bedrock of what we do. It can come in many different forms to someone in need living on Skid Row. Hope begins with a meal at the Mission, but it can also be the water we provide on an extremely hot Los Angeles summer day. Hope can be a refreshing shower. Hope can come in the form of art therapy, for women who need an outlet to deal with the pain of their past. Hope can be graduating from our program and getting a Fresh Start in life. As you’ll read in the June issue of Crossroads, your support of the Mission helps make this a Summer of Hope for our friends and neighbors living on Skid Row. Our program meets their individual spiritual, emotional and physical needs through counseling, vocational training, employment assistance, transitional housing and more.
