    Our Campaign

    The goal of 100 Days of Homelessness is ambitious: raise $100,000 and engage 1,000 volunteers in 100 days. Help us reach that goal. If you donate to Home For Good, your dollar will go twice as far, thanks to a match from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation. Volunteer and help someone get matched with permanent housing. Together, we can end chronic and veteran homelessness in L.A. County.
