“We’re excited to be working with Lucky Devils to raise awareness about youth homelessness in Hollywood and support for our services,” Michael Kass, Director of Development for My Friend’s Place said. “The holidays are a great time to come together in support for some of the most vulnerable members of the community. Working together, we can make a difference.”

About My Friend’s Place:
The mission of My Friend’s Place (MFP) is to assist and inspire homeless youth to build self-sufficient lives. Founded in 1988, MFP began as a volunteer-led, mobile meal program that distributed sack lunches to homeless youth in Hollywood. Today, MFP has grown to become the most frequently visited drop-in center for homeless youth in Southern California. Our primary goal is to lower traditional barriers to service and provide homeless youth the opportunity to improve psychological, intellectual, and physical capacity to reach their potential.
Each year, over 1,800 youth pass through our doors. They can access a wide continuum of services encompassing Basic Needs (food, clothing, showers, etc.), Transformative Education (employment and education workshops, creative arts programming, etc.), and Health and Well-Being Services (health education and clinical case management). All services are provided in a judgment free atmosphere of dignity and respect.
