HomeWalk 2015 — November 21, 2015
Tiffany Jamoralin (HHYP Network Manager), Arlene Schneir (HHYP Co-Chair), and Jessica Ivey (HHYP Youth Coordinated Entry System Coordinator) at HomeWalk 2015.
In recognition of California’s Runaway & Homeless Youth Month, the HHYP participated in United Way Los Angeles’s HomeWalk with the LA Coalition to End Youth Homelessness (LACEYH). The LACEYH team brought over 30 individuals to support community efforts toward preventing and ending youth homelessness in Los Angeles County. In total, nearly 12,000 participants walked the streets surrounding Exposition Park to show solidarity in the quest to end homelessness in Los Angeles.
Every year, 8,500 young people walk through HHYP agencies’ doors for various types of services –medical, mental health, substance abuse, housing, and support services.
