I am thrilled to be one of the producers for Homeward LA, a 10-day citywide event (April 26 to May 5, 2019) where multiple productions of monologues based on stories from people who have experienced homelessness are performed by actors all around the city to bring attention to homelessness in LA and raise funds for the vital work of the Midnight Mission.

Homelessness awareness is something I’ve always been passionate about. I was asked to share a bit about my experience so here’s a video about the intersection of my service, art and the concern for our neighbors.
