Read books, do crafts, and get active with the kids at Midnight Mission's Homelight Family Living Program.
Midnight Mission offers a bridge to self-sufficiency for homeless people through counseling, education, training and job placement. Midnight Mission's Homelight Family Living Program goes beyond emergency care by providing long-term solutions for families - highlighting the structure, accountability, and opportunity.
Volunteer Project: The children at Midnight Mission’s Homelight Family Living Program in Inglewood look forward to every Tuesday night when L.A. Works volunteers spend time with them playing games, doing arts and crafts projects (from Play-Doh to rockets), reading books, and just having fun while their parents attend classes and counseling sessions. The seemingly simple act of interacting with the children is a highlight of their day and can be of yours too!
