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 […]

What’s Your Routine?

It’s 9PM on a Sunday. Where are you? What did you do today? Today I went out to Long Beach to talk to the people with another nonprofit organization. Did you know that services are not available to people on the weekends? WHAT?! When did helping people take a break on the weekends? This time […]

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 […]
