Quarantine Kits for LA Homeless

Location: Los Angeles CA, 90004

Date: 5/5/2020 Spots Remaining: 2000

Description

Quick Overview: Want to help your neighbors experiencing homelessness during COVID-19? Assemble kits for our community's most vulnerable. PATH LA is working in close collaboration with the city and funders to support our homeless neighbors during this crisis. One of our newest initiatives has been the opening of several new quarantine and isolation sites to shelter folks who are at-risk or have tested positive for COVID-19. We are serving over 400 individuals at these sites through shelter, wraparound case management services and social support throughout the length of their stay.

You can help these individuals by  providing any of the items listed below. For their own safety and the safety of others, these folks have limitted in-person interactions. It is critical that we show them, as a community, that while they may be in isolation, they are not alone.

Mission: PATH's mission is to end homelessness for individuals, families, and communities. Since 1984, PATH has worked across the state of California to deliver life saving services. While the rest of California stays at home, many of our homeless neighbors don’t have anywhere to turn. PATH will remain on the front lines to help our most vulnerable through street outreach, case management, and food support. We need volunteers like YOU to help us by sending life-saving supplies to those most in need.

Impact: PATH serves over 20% of the homeless population in California, through nine interim housing shelters, 14 supportive housing communities, and dozens of outreach teams hitting the streets each day. All of these services will continue through the COVID-19 crisis. Many of those living on the streets are older, sick, or have underlying health issues. This is the group of people who are at the most risk of COVID-19. Now more than ever PATH's work is saving lives, with your support.

Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities: When you express interest for this opportunity, we will follow up with how to purchase supplies through our Amazon CharityList or how to schedule a donation drop-off.
