Homeward LA is a citywide event where multiple productions of monologues, based on stories from people who’ve experienced homelessness, will be performed in venues all around the Greater Los Angeles area.
On April 28th, we put on one of over 50 productions of Homeward LA, inspiring our city to come together to end homelessness. We are so proud to be a part of this wonderful team who made a huge difference in our community. At our presentation of Homeward LA, attendees heard readings of monologues based on stories from people who have been homeless and who strive to find their way home. The readings and music were performed by local community members.
