Our Statement to Tragedy on Skid Row

Vigil for the man known as "Africa" on the streets of Skid Row.

 

We at United Way of Greater Los Angeles express our deepest sorrow for everyone who has been affected by the recent tragedy on the streets of Skid Row. What happened to the man known as "Africa" is heartbreaking and a stark reminder that it is more important than ever to show compassion for everyone in our communities. Every day, nearly 40,000 people are homeless on our streets. Each one of them is part of our community. Our mission is to serve our most vulnerable neighbors -- those who may sometimes feel invisible or forgotten. But we see them. We are more determined than ever in our resolve to end veteran and chronic homelessness and do our part to make sure everyone on our streets feels the support and love of the community that surrounds them.
