It’s less than 24 hours until 2019.
As you read this, there are homeless people who are striving for a better life.
And these people face an extraordinary challenge.
The longer they live on the streets, the more they feel like the world has given up on them.
In many cases, this overwhelming feeling leads to severe depression and sadness.
Today, you have the chance to turn this sadness around and to create a new life full of happiness for 2019!

Did you know that our 85% success rate is growing?
In fact, this year alone we’ve helped over 40 homeless people find full-time jobs!
But, I’d like to fill you in on a little secret…
At the core of this success is someone very special…
That person is YOU.
One way you make our jobs program so successful is by helping us provide FREE counseling to our homeless participants and graduates.
Our two INCREDIBLE program directors, Kelsie and Precious provide these counseling sessions in both a group setting, and as one-on-one personal ...
As a transgender woman, I’ve faced plenty of rejection.
But you helped me find my voice again.
For years, people didn’t accept me for who I am, so I ended up moving in with my loving grandfather.
When he passed away, I found myself in a really scary and lonely situation. I began to shut down mentally.
I didn’t have anywhere to go and before I knew it, I was homeless.
The longer I lived on the streets, the more shy and reserved I became. I barely spoke to anyone.
Then everything changed...
Because of support from kind people like you, I was ...
You get a new job.
Within the FIRST HOUR on your first day of work, you get a promotion.
Sounds impressive, right?
That’s what happened to me.
But that’s not the whole story…
Before I got the job, I was homeless and sleeping underneath an abandoned truck in Hollywood.
I was addicted to drugs and my life was going nowhere fast.
This is where you came into my life.
Your support with Food on Foot lifted me out of the dark and seemingly bottomless hole I was in.
With your help, I was able to attend ...
“This program is too good to be true. There’s NO WAY Food on Foot can get me a full-time job and my own apartment.”
This is how Michael felt. He was so used to rejection that he became skeptical of any organization’s claimed success stories. He had been let down too many times.
You show our homeless clients that change is possible:
When you support food on foot, you create a positive chain reaction.
Every time you help someone leave the streets, you give proof that this program works!
For every job you help someone find, you instill hope in someone ...

John lived in a flimsy, torn tent on the dangerous streets of Los Angeles’ Skid Row.
He would stay up each night guarding his few belongings while keeping a vigilant eye out from muggers and assailants.
Each morning, the sun would shine rays of temporary safety onto the vulnerable corners of the crowded and crime-riddled tent encampments. A sigh of relief would fall upon John’s tired face. The dangers of the night ...

Wow! With your incredible help, two more people have been forever and positively changed:
Terrell S. graduated on Sunday, April 1st
Brandon B. received his Gray shirt on March 18th
Because of your support, Terrell and Brandon are both fully employed and are living off the streets in their own safe apartments! Thank you.
What's the difference between a Gray Shirt and a Graduate?
Gray Shirts are Food on Foot participants who are halfway through the Work for Food program.
These hard workers receive their “Gray Shirt” once they have attended the Work ...
Life goals can seem daunting…

Want to learn a fancy vocabulary word?
How about Glossophobia?
Yup. That’s a real word. It means “fear of public speaking.”
If you have this fear, you’re not alone. In fact, 75% of us have this fear to some degree.
Many of our incoming homeless clients also have a fear of public speaking. But with your help, our clients rebuild their confidence and communication skills. This gives them a HUGE advantage in finding jobs and succeeding in a new life off the streets.
