For 12 years, Illumination Foundation has been singularly focused on disrupting the cycle of homelessness. Making an impact on homelessness is a community effort—one that requires every one of us to care and be involved.
Illumination Foundation’s COVID-19 Support Fund was created to take immediate action toward the protection, prevention and safety of our clients who we serve 24 hours a day throughout Southern California and to access emergency items needed to combat this virus. The fund will help to meet the needs of increased healthcare costs as this crisis escalates. We are serving more clients every day in order to get the vulnerable street homeless into our safe care. This population is the most susceptible to COVID-19. As this crisis continues, we anticipate that more of our neighbors will become homeless and will need a place to call home. Your donation today will allow us to serve the homeless, keep them out of emergency rooms and under our high quality of care where prevention and physical and mental health are our key priorities.
We cannot thank you enough for your generosity during this time. It is your kindness that brings light and hope to our clients, families and the Illumination Foundation Team.
