Thank you so much for supporting Homeward LA 2019. We had a goal of staging 50 productions, and we had 54 productions. We had a goal of raising $100,000 for The Midnight Mission, and we’ve raised more than that. We had a goal of inspiring our community to care more for those who are experiencing homelessness, and from what we’ve seen it’s been an absolute success.
Thank you to everyone who joined us: the storytellers who shared their experiences, the hundreds and hundreds of volunteers that give their time and talent, and to all of you who contributed by seeing the shows and/or making donations.
You can still donate here or text “homewardla” to 71777 to make a donation!

|Over 10 days in April 2018, nearly 300 actors performed in 26 productions of monologues, based on stories from people who have been homeless. The productions were seen by nearly 2,000 people in venues all around Los Angeles, raising approximately $55,000 for The Midnight Mission.
This year, from April 26 to May 5, Homeward LA will be staging new stories from those who strive to find their way home in 50 productions across the city. Join us as we inspire the community to come together and end homelessness.
Tickets are $20 and all proceeds go to The Midnight Mission, a nonprofit on Skid Row that provides shelter, food, education and more to LA’s homeless population. If you cannot attend, please consider donating to the cause via the donate button below.

|Homeward LA had a star-studded kick-off event April 23 to showcase the powerful stories of people who have experienced homelessness with special guests and celebrities reading the monologues. Thank you to Soylent and The Midnight Mission and to all who came out in support of Homeward LA.
