Conversations on Young Parenting and Well-Being

Sanctuary of Hope proudly hosted Conversations on Young Parenting and Well-Being.  The event addressed young parent resiliency and was free to the public thanks to Kaiser Permanente for providing space at their Baldwin Hills-Crenshaw Medical Offices. Throughout the evening, the audience heard thoughtful discussions on youth parenthood such as the importance of childcare, challenges of housing affordability, need for more fatherhood supports, and narrative shift to “village resiliency”.

A Narrative on Ending Black Homelessness

Ready for Mobilization

We have a few hightlights from A Narrative of Ending Black Homelessness. We thank our sponsors, panelists, and attendees for an in-depth and insightful sharing of information on the issue. As we continue to end homelessness for all people, we hope that the disproportionate number of Black people experiencing homelessness remains on everyone’s radar and that the drivers of homelessness for Black people are approached with solutions. Stay updated on our #blackhomelessnarrative activities by signing up for our newsletter and joining our social media pages.
