Would it surprise you to know that 53,000 people in Los Angeles are homeless and one third of those are families and young adults? How can you personally make a difference in homelessness in LA? Our guest, Jill Bauman, tackles that reality daily as President and CEO of Imagine LA…an organization that is dedicated to ending the cycle of family homelessness and chronic poverty through providing a variety of services to help stabilize families.
According to Jill, homelessness is like the tip of the iceberg, there is so much under the surface. Families need many resources to help in the struggle to end their poverty. The magic of Imagine LA is in their volunteer mentors who work with families to build sustainable successes. One of the mentor partners is Jennifer Nickerson from City National Bank. They provide financial wellness information to help people by providing tools for budgeting and banking for people to succeed.
Tune in this Saturday, February 23rd at 5:30pm on KABC radio when Renee Fraser, PhD. explores the challenges of ending chronic poverty and homelessness one family at a time.
