1 in 4 of every homeless adults is an unaccompanied woman. This is a statistic about a community of homeless individuals that is overlooked and underserved.
On Wednesday, May 25, WISEPlace, alongside Bird Girl Industries, hosted a Gathering of like-minded individuals. Information was presented by our speakers, Philip Mangano (American Round Table to Abolish Homelessness), Dr. Sofia Herrera (Institute for Urban Initiatives), Molly Moen (Chrysalis LA) and Jenny Rodin, founder of Hope Family Interventions and a WISEPlace graduate.
The primary goal of this Gathering was to bring together leaders in the 1 in 4 movement as well as friends and partners, in an open dialogue to discuss the challenges facing unaccompanied homeless women, and to begin developing strategies as to how we can bring awareness and engagement in initiatives taking place locally.
Please join the movement with WISEPlace and others who are committed to serving the population of unaccompanied homeless women in Orange County.
