Homeless Female Veterans

I walk into the room where a female only luncheon is held, arriving 1 hour late. I felt bad that I was late, but then again I did stop for water and ice on the way over, which I knew was greatly needed. A former council woman speaks to the women present, the majority being […]

So You Want to Form A Coalition

So as some of you may know, or not know, Carry Me Productions has been attending these so-called Coalition meetings in the Los Angeles and surrounding areas. We were not impressed, and to be honest, we left with more questions than we came in with. Each time we walk away from these meetings, the same […]

Leadership

What does it mean to be a leader? I’ve thought a lot about that question in the past few weeks. I’ve recently been spending time volunteering with a few nonprofits, and I always find myself asking this question: Who is leading this group?

First Time with Outreach

As I have learned more and more about this travesty we call homelessness, I volunteered with a nonprofit today (7/5/15) LA on Cloud 9. It was our goal to pass out food and care packages. Driving to the event, I wasn’t sure what to expect, so I just walked along with this team with an […]
