On Thursday, July 23rd, we celebrated our Leadership donors creating pathways out of poverty for the past 10 years!
During the event, Julia Vincock, a proud US Army Veteran, shared her story of overcoming homelessness. In 2012, Julia was evicted from her apartment of 17 years and lost all her belongings. When she came across Union Station Homeless Services, a United Way of Greater Los Angeles partner, she shared, "On that day, I regained my hope completely. I felt it was possible for me to have a home again."
Since then, she obtained a housing voucher, got approved for permanent housing and received the funding to cover her security deposit.
On any given night in LA, 4,362 veterans do not have a safe place to call home. Our Leadership donors are not only bringing an end to veteran homelessness in LA County, but are also restoring hope for all vets.
