PUBLISHED:

Last year marked the first drop after three years of increases in the number of homeless people in Los Angeles. But in the San Fernando Valley, the number of people living on the streets rose. And while voters approved measures to generate millions for homeless housing and services, there has been pushback, too, against plans to build shelters in some communities.

Against that backdrop, members of neighborhood councils in the west San Fernando Valley and people working at homeless service organizations have made a grassroots push to pave the way for homeless services in the area.

Interview with Donna Sullivan

Frankie Castanon, a Photo Journalism Student from California State University, Northridge, conducted an interview with Donna Sullivan.

Donna was a working professional who became ill and through various circumstances eventually became homeless. In this interview, Donna talks about what it feels like to be a homeless woman on the streets. Her words are heart breaking and reinforces the importance for Sisters on the Streets to help homeless women.

As Donna said, “More and more and more people become homeless (including families).”

Please watch!

October 2018 Connect Day

October 2018 Homeless Connect Day was held at Our Prince Of Peace in Woodland Hills! LA Family Housing organized a great event with the support of Councilman Bob Blumenfield. Sisters on the Streets was set up in the outside courtyard along with other giveaway booths such as Empowered Gifts, Hope Mill, Operation Blankets Of Love and much more. Services and providers inside were from the Department of Mental Health, Tarzana Treatment Center, Veterans Services, Youth Services, LA Public Library, Parking Ticket Resolution, DPSS and much more.

We were able to provide so many clothes for the participants who attended the event. One woman shared her success in obtaining housing and she was able to select new clothes for her new closet. Women were able to take as much feminine hygiene as needed. There were some people from the shelter as well.

Huge thank you to our volunteers! Anne that runs the hygiene, Christin that helps with bras and underwear, Fancy Nancy and Kristin that brought mens dress shirts and much more, Nikki for separating items before the event, Frazier for help loading/unloading and always helping out, and thanks to everybody else as well! It’s a never ending job to keep hanging up clothes throughout the event but such a great feeling to match up the perfect outfit with someone in need. Such a blessed day. The biggest thanks is to the participants for coming to the event to get services and update their info and of course, for letting us serve them.
