HAPPY BIRITHDAY JENNY BOYD!!
In honor of Jenny Boyd's birthday this year, some of us fans would like to donate to this wonderful organization, PATH (People Assisting The Homeless). We chose this wonderful organization because they are doing so much good in the world and so much good for the many people in need. Jenny Boyd has personally volunteered at this organization several times. Following after Jenny's example, our birthday gift to her is to help every which way we can and donating to PATH is just one way we want to show our love and support.
Jenny Boyd is an incredible actress currently protraying Lizzie Saltzman on CW's Legacies. On top of her busy and hectic schedule, she still finds time to volunteer at numerous organizations. In addition to the proactiveness to prevent and assist the homeless, she has also inspired so many of her fans to take part in numerous other causes such as being environmentally friendly, defense against animal cruelty, preventing and spreading awareness on human trafficking and so much more.
Happy Birthday Jenny! We hope this gift puts a smile on your face.
It all started with a letter written by Claire and Rev. Charles Orr, calling for the community to address the ever-increasing issue of homelessness. In response, on the night of December 8, 1983, 60 people gathered together to figure out how to help people who were experiencing homelessness in their neighborhoods. On that night, PATH was born.
The group started by distributing food and clothing to people living on the streets. As homelessness continued to grow nationwide, research revealed that Housing First—a best practice model that first connects people to permanent housing and then focuses on stabilization through voluntary supportive services, proved more effective. Now, over thirty years later, we have more than 25 locations throughout California, provide services in more than 140 cities, and more than 1,000 units of permanent supportive housing completed or in the pipeline.
Across the state, we help people find permanent housing and provide case management, medical and mental healthcare, benefits advocacy, employment training, and other services to help them maintain their homes stably. Since 2013, we have connected more than 7,500 people to permanent homes.
