With the help of our generous corporate leaders, we are building a better Los Angeles. Every week, we highlight our top corporate leaders and salute them for helping us create pathways out of poverty. United Way of Greater Los Angeles extends a huge thanks to these leaders and corporations working with us to permanently break the cycle of poverty for our most vulnerable neighbors: families, children, veterans and the homeless.

Company: TCW - HomeWalk Champions!
The incredible team at TCW went beyond the call of duty by creating posters, signs, and friendly contests to recruit walkers and fundraising!
TCW is finding unique and fun ways to fight homelessness and to get their team involved! They’re having friendly floor vs. floor fundraising contests, they created unique co-brand signage materials, and are giving out miniature “houses” for a raffle that will give out some cool prizes.
TCW continues to be one of the strongest supporters for our annual 5K walk/run to end homelessness in Los Angeles. Thank you to Shelley, Patty, and everyone at TCW.
