COVID-19 Community Response Initiative

Monday, July 27th, 2020
Our Community Response Initiative includes food distribution in our immigrant communities and Black and Brown unity

In light of California’s and Los Angeles’ Stay at Home orders because of COVID-19, our office has ceased all on-site operations that are non-essential, including programming, community events, and our annual Central American Youth Leadership Conference. Our team is currently working remotely, maintaining virtual and telephonic communication with the youth and families we serve. 

This has challenged us to be creative in serving our community while safeguarding the health and wellness of our staff, who are all resilient individuals passionate about social justice. 

Amidst the current crisis, Homies Unidos launched our Community Response Initiative to mitigate some of the most immediate needs of our community. In addition to bi-weekly food distributions in Koreatown, Pico-Union and Westlake, we assemble care packages and deliver them to our youth and families, which include teen parents, single parents, undocumented and mixed-status households, formerly incarcerated individuals, families of currently-incarcerated individuals, and individuals experiencing homeless and food insecurity. 

Our community needs us now more than ever and we will continue distributing food and provide care packages to our community members as long as the need is ongoing and alleviates some of the stress and financial strain brought on by the current situation.

By supporting Homies Unidos’ Community Response Initiative you will help us continue to provide food and essential care items to those in our community most in need.

Central American Youth Conference

You can help us reach our goal

In solidarity with Central American Refugees (CAR), Homies Unidos is proposing to put together the first locally-accessible Central American Youth Conference. The main purpose will be to ensure that these refugee youth feel welcomed, to celebrate and promote Central American art and culture, provide health resources and on-the-spot referrals, facilitate a legal resources workshop, showcase their stories and experiences, build a supportive community, and create opportunities for positive feedback and self-esteem-building. HIPGive

 Share, like and tag @HIPGive and use the hashtag #HIPGive2HEALTH

With your support we will be able to:

  • Provide training for 15 CAR youth this summer through our Youth Leadership Training to learn about how tell their stories and advocate to elected officials and community about their experience to gain support and start healing.
  • Youth Leadership graduates will spearhead the organizing of the Central American Youth Conference In September 19, 2015 at Santee Educational Complex.
  • Facilitate a preventive holistic health process of integration of the youth, which will be launched within the youth conference, workshops and the resource fair.
  • Youth will enjoy Central American art, culture and music to address issues of identity.

MAKE YOUR DONATION

Homies Unidos started reaching out to schools and community service providers to refer CAR youth who needs mental health or legal services. As part of a preventive strategy we began implementing the National Compadres Network’s Joven Noble curriculum, character development program to provide a safe space where they can express themselves with indigenous traditional tools. Even though, with limited resources we have served over 58 youth in four different schools: Santee High, Hawthorne High, Hawkins High and L.A. River.   Through this Conference we will address the need to bring youth from other schools where to a place where they can share experiences and be introduced to health and legal services providers among other resources.

Cierren La Escuela De Las Americas!!!

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

Homies Unidos has advocated for just policies to deal with the issue of violence that plagues not just the streets of Los Angeles but also the streets of Central America. We will be joining School of The Americas Watch in their mission to close down this school that has trained many dictators an assassins throughout Latin America. As part of our Youth Leadership training on civic engagement, we will be taking five youth who have graduated from our program to Columbus, GA and will be presenting on how, what happens in Latin America, affects our youth in the streets of Los Angeles. We will be screening the Fruits of War documentary and educating people from all parts of the U.S. about the work that Homies Unidos does and at the same time creating leaders of our youth who at one point where disfranchised and now are developing into advocates for social justice.

Help us raise the funds to take our youth to have this once in a lifetime amazing experience. DONATE NOW
