You Can Help Someone Like Dometra This Holiday Season!

You changed my life in a HUGE way! My name is Dometra and almost exactly two years ago today, I moved into my own apartment with a full-time job at Wally’s Wine & Spirits. After living in the South and going through Hurricanes Rita, Katrina, Gustav, Ike, and Isaac, I relocated back to California to start over again. I had no possessions in this new city, and I quickly struggled to find a job in my field. Before I knew it, I became homeless and ended up living on the streets of Los Angeles.

Another Long-Term Success Story

“You can’t do this.”   “You’re not good enough.”   “You’ll never get anywhere.”   For Tia D., these words of discouragement were commonplace.   After her mother passed away, Tia was adopted by her aunt at age five. “My aunt never showed me or my siblings love and affection. She used to beat us, told us we would never be anything in life, and that she wished she never took us in.” Tia persevered despite these horrible living conditions:   She focused on her studies and even took college level courses while in high school.   In 2012, she moved to Los Angeles to escape her abusive ...
