According to a count conducted March 22, 2022, Find Homeless People has assisted 12,912 people by giving away 2,137 pounds of essential goods including food, water, new clothes and blankets, hygiene kits, and more. Over the past 14 months, volunteers were led by Cesar Hernandez into highly populated homeless regions of Los Angeles and Orange County, California (including 41 trips to Skid Row). Many of the homeless and at-risk people we encounter lack the mobility necessary to access better resources, which is why we are taking essential goods to them constantly.
As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, Find Homeless People takes a two-pronged holistic approach to stop homelessness by focusing on social integration and self-employment first. When our volunteers meet a homeless person, we interview them to create a searchable profile for our public database that family members or kin could find when searching for someone online. Our database gets homeless people identified and back in contact with loved ones to help them reintegrate back into society – which is key to sustaining mental health and preventing suicide.
In addition to community outreach, we created The Business Playbook; which is a guidebook to self-employment explaining how anyone can support theirself by forming a business or fitting into an existing brand. The Business Playbook is available for free with five full weeks of free mentoring included at FindHomelessPeople.org. 100% of sales from The Business Playbook go directly to supporting homeless people in Los Angeles County and Orange County, CA.
We need your help. Any donation to Find Homeless People is 100% tax-deductible and 100% of your gift goes directly to essential goods that our volunteers will deliver at Skid Row and other highly populated homeless ares in Los Angeles County and Orange County, California.
Our mission is to improve the lives of homeless people in Los Angeles County and Orange County California including anyone recently in custody or formerly incarcerated to provide the guidance needed for a fresh start to recovery.
