For our friends at Skid Row, all the mission remain open.

Also Los Angeles is converting 42 of its recreation centers into temporary shelters for homeless residents, providing 6,000 new beds to try to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.
In the first phase they plan to open 1,600 shelter beds at 13 recreation centers by Monday March 23, with beds provided by the American Red Cross.

Please keep praying for all people, all nations in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Veterans Shelter

A message from my friend Kevin Lewandowski:

Jennifer Chou, we are still up and running our Volunteers of America Veterans Shelter on Skid Row. I am working daily as well to care for our homeless Veterans. There will be approximately 6000 beds coming soon to service LA Homeless population getting them off the Streets. Jennifer they also have the 24 hr showers and 12 hr a day laundry open at the Refresh Spot that supplies soap, detergent, everything. They need blood donors at the Red Cross if you really want to help.

Tiny Homes Delivered to Help the Homeless

“But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Matthew 19:26

This will be one of our goals in Los Angeles as we associate with Open Corner Christian Home located in Anaheim, is building tiny homes like these to enlarge their capabilities, helping our homeless friends in Skid Row. By God’s grace, in God’s time, may God’s will be done.

Surge In Older Homeless Population

Thanks to Andrew Cockburn for this link:

“While some homeless people are aging in place, L.A.’s spiraling housing costs increasingly are driving people into homelessness for the first time at advanced ages, advocates said…“Three to five people a month are falling into homelessness late in life,” said Brandi Orton, government relations director for St. Barnabas Senior Services and managing director of the Los Angeles Aging Advocacy Coalition.” (7/19/18)

While L.A.’s overall homeless population dipped slightly in this year’s count, those 62 and older rose by 22%, to nearly 5,000 people.

When Homeless People Die In Your City

Thanks to Andrew Cockburn for this post:

“In 30 years as a social worker, Turner has attempted to access the funds on numerous occasions, most recently in 2016 to get assistance with the burial of one of the vendors of Street Sense. “It’s always hard,” she said. “We’re often turned away. When we tried to access the fund the last time, we were told it was empty. Nobody pays as much attention to the fund as they should.” … When such hurdles become insurmountable, charitable organizations, religious groups and even in one reported case, a coroner, have stepped in to pay for proper burials of those who have died on the streets. Local churches, many of which have their own affiliated cemeteries, have been known to donate plots, and absorb the costs of the service.” (6/28/18)

Can cities provide the dignity in death homeless people often weren’t provided in life?
