With United Way’s annual HomeWalk fast approaching, we’re not just trying to raise funds, we’re also raising awareness about homelessness in L.A. County. That’s why we’ve partnered with prominent L.A. photographers to capture unique perspectives of L.A. County from street level.
The streets of Los Angeles can be both beautiful and hard. And through these photos, we invite you to reflect on how your view of the city changes as you put yourself in the shoes of someone who has just lost their job or who lives on the street. With all of L.A.'s world-famous attractions and palm tree lined pathways, it's easy to forget we still have 57,000 Angelenos living on the streets without a home. Now in its 11th year, HomeWalk strives to change how the community approaches the issue of homelessness in L.A. By walking and fundraising with us, you're showing your support for our most vulnerable neighbors.
The beauty of the streets can be inspiring. It can also feel suffocating and lonely. We need to come together as a community and say #YEStoHOUSING.
