I asked Curtis White, who interned for us at our downtown church this past year, to make a short list of resources in the Skid Row area that we could support and get involved in. So he created a Google map highlighting Skid Row. The map is a work in progress but shows the many opportunities we have to help adults and children who find themselves homeless just outside our doors at the Bridge at Union Church in downtown Los Angeles.
Though we primarily partner with great organizations like like Union Rescue Mission (led by Andy Bales) and the Los Angeles Mission (led by Herb Smith), there are myriad of resources downtown including a friend of mine who is starting a not-for-profit beautifying the streets of Skid Row through tree planting and community advocacy.
