Unemployment rates are expected to rise to 20% and there are individuals living at PodShare that are asking if there is any relief for them. As a small business, we are indebted to our landlords and bills so we are not in the position to offer free housing.
If you have the means to sponsor a person on a nightly, weekly or monthly basis then you are preventing homelessness in city of Los Angeles during a pandemic.
With your contribution, you may remain anonymous or be connected with the housed individual through email for a personal thank-you.
Remember that you are “buying” people time to stay indoors, weather this storm, and resume the workforce when appropriate. These are real people, of all ages, seeking support during unstable times. They are losing their restaurant jobs, cannot travel, and have no one to turn to and will wind up homeless if we don’t help.
If you are able to make a larger donation or seeking a tax-deduction, our 501c3 is still pending, but we have amazing partners in Downtown Women’s Center and Safe Place for Youth who can house their members in our pods with your contribution.
