About This Campaign


Youth Homelessness Is On The Rise


This year, Los Angeles saw a 64% increase in homeless youth and a 41% increase in homeless children!

The Village Family Services sees over 700 homeless youth alone at our Drop-in Center in North Hollywood. 

It's time we as a community stood with them!

Join The Village Family Services, along with Wells Fargo and Councilmember Paul Krekorian, to come together as a community and show solidarity with the thousands of children and youth who call the streets their home each night.

Our goal is to host an event that not only provides a fun, low-cost activity for families, but also directs children and youth towards community service and engagement.

After the 2K around North Hollywood Park, all registered children and adults will have access to:

-Petting Zoo-
-Inflatable Obstacle Course-
-Bounce House-
-Climbing Wall-
-Face Painting-
-Live Student Art-
-And More!-

Registration:

Children Under 10: Bring a book to donate to a foster child.
Youth 11-17: Sign a pledge to do a community service activity
Adults: $25 day of event ($20 pre-registered)

Campaign to Support The Village Family Services

In 2017, Los Angeles saw a 64% increase in homeless youth and a 41% increase in homeless children. Many of them coming from the foster care system.

Something has to change. 

The Village Family Services is one of Los Angeles' leading social care organizations dedicated to providing expert care, comprehensive support services, and vital linkages to community partners for children, youth and families who have experienced the trauma of domestic violence, neglect, addiction, homelessness or abuse. Our foster care program places hundreds of children with loving families, and our Drop-in Center serves over 700 homeless and high-risk youth each year.

Your financial support provides:
  • Basic Care (food, showers, clean clothes, access to quality medical care)
  • Behavioral Health/Counseling
  • LGBT Workshops & Support Groups
  • Case Management
  • Housing Support
  • Job Training & Placement
  • Education Support & Linkages
  • Expressive Arts


With your help, we can ensure that each child and youth who seeks our help receives the appropriate care & support they need to become healthy, self-sufficient adults. 

Thank you for your support.
