Belove.org has been serving people on the streets of Los Angeles for over five years bringing love, dignity and compassion to people experiencing homelessness. Our program engages volunteers and community partners who work alongside our unhoused neighbors to provide immediate assistance and help address the systems causing homelessness.
We want to change the way people see and understand homelessness so that neighbor to neighbor we can lift each other up through love, partnership and compassion to transform communities. We believe homelessness can be solved but it’s up to all of us to make it happen.Your support can help make this wish a reality- changing stumbling blocks into steping stones.
California has the highest % of unsheltered homelessness of any state. Unfortunately, being unsheltered drastically increases your chances of facing health challenges, violence, trauma, and longer lengths of homelessness.
Based on a UCLA study that came out in 2019 (before COVID), people who reported being unsheltered were 25 times more likely to have trimorbidity- physical and mental illness and substance abuse issues- than those sheltered. So please join us during this critical time to show our brothers and sisters we see, love, and care.
“The point was never to try to end homelessness or fix the problem – because truthfully it’s far more complicated than we could ever realize – but we can spread love and we can connect with people. Sometimes all people need is hope.”
–Justin Baldoni, BeLove CoFounder
