YLG Community Service with Skid Row Housing Trust – SOLD OUT!
Join the YLG and Skid Row Housing Trust for a day of community service, learning and fun! YLG will be partnering with the Trust to perform minor repairs and maintenance at one or more of their supportive housing developments serving formerly-homeless individuals. In addition, volunteers will have the opportunity to learn more about the incredible work that the Trust is doing to abate homelessness in Los Angeles.
Founded in 1989, the Skid Row Housing Trust develops and operates permanent supportive housing – affordable housing with robust onsite services – so that people who have experienced homelessness, prolonged extreme poverty, poor health, disabilities, mental illness and/or addiction can lead safe, stable lives in wellness. The Trust operates 26 buildings, primarily in Downtown Los Angeles’ Skid Row neighborhood, providing over 1,800 safe, beautiful, and affordable homes to some of the most vulnerable homeless individuals in our community.
We will kick off at 10:00 a.m. and conclude our work around noon or 12:30 p.m., after which we will travel to a nearby brewery for a lunch/happy hour with Skid Row Housing Trust staff, concluding around 2 p.m. FTI Consulting has graciously offered to sponsor the lunch/happy hour.
Please make sure to wear close-toed shoes and clothing that you don’t mind getting a little dirty! This event will surely be a great networking opportunity and a fantastic way to give back to our city which gives us so much.
Please feel free to email Matthew Nusinow at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
