Walk to End Homelessness!

Homewalk 2009
November 7th
Exposition Park
7:30 AM Registration Opens
9:00 AM Walk Begins

Los Angeles is the homeless capital of the nation. More individuals and families live without a place to call home here than any other city in the nation. In this time of economic crisis, when a growing number of families are facing serious financial hardships and many are becoming homeless, it is more important than ever to focus on permanent solutions to put an end to this unacceptable situation.

Consider participating in Homewalk, United Way's 5K walk, on November 7th to raise awareness of the homelessness issue and the funds to do something about it. To date, HomeWalk has mobilized over 8,000 walkers and raised over $1,000,000 that has gone back into the community to support local programs that will help end homelessness for men, women and children in Los Angeles County.
