Lending Relief was formed as a response. A response to apathy. My own apathy. My own indifference. Seeing the homeless population grow and grow here in Los Angeles over the past 10 years just became too much to witness. I started to get overwhelmed and I began to disconnect, it all felt so very daunting. The truth is I could live my entire life and not have to think twice about those affected by homelessness. But something inside wouldn't let me keep looking and wishing it away. I knew I had to engage, face this humanitarian crises head on and to invite others to do the same. Engage.
So here’s your invitation. Would you join us in our fight to eradicate homelessness here in Los Angeles? We believe in radical empathy, loving people without borders or limits, and caring for others. We meet every 4th Saturday in either Skid Row or Venice Beach.
Thank you for reading this! Please see our Get Involved page, send us an email, or connect with us on Instagram for more info. Would love to hear from you!
