Amazing, small but mighty non-profit orgs are out there. I recently became aware of one particularly effective group called ‘Sharing Love With Others‘. Based in LA and focusing on helping the local unhoused directly with care and, love.
The population in LA living outdoors is large. In California as a whole it is estimated that 49,000 are ‘chronically homeless’ and that LA County accounts for half of that number. While the local government, as well as Gov. Gavin Newsom are pledging to address the situation, the reality on the ground is in great need of being improved by direct, compassionate action.
This is where small local charities like ‘Sharing Love With Others‘ can produce immediate results with measurable success. Unlike bureaucratic, political proposals, a local grass-roots org uses resources and volunteering to help improve lives directly and immediately without intermediaries.
Founded by Maxine Sealey in 2019, geared to help the homeless community and the impoverished in Los Angeles and surrounding areas.
a quote from interview with Maxine in VoyageLA sheds some light on the origins of the group, “I was led to create SHARING LOVE WITH OTHERS after becoming the Outreach Director in 2004 of the church that I attend, while going through my personal hardship, after volunteering with other organizations that help the homeless, and after connecting people to free resources for their home such as refrigerators, bed, furniture and more. For some reason people would call on me to help, and I had the desire to help in whatever way I could.”
Supporting active, effective organizations like this is crucial, politically entrenched solutions notwithstanding.
