People Assisting the Homeless (PATH)
The following program was awarded grants as part of the Bob Woodruff Foundation’s second 2020 Expedited Grants Portfolio, addressing urgent needs related to COVID-19.
Service Area: Los Angeles, California
PATH’s mission is to end homelessness for individuals, families, and communities by building affordable housing and providing supportive services throughout California. Veterans experiencing homelessness have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, as many social services were forced to cease operations due to the need for social distancing. This disruption in services has severed veterans’ connection to their community and to important resources. This NFL-Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF) partnership “Healthy Lifestyles and Creating Community” grant will improve the wellbeing of up to 60 post-9/11 veterans by cultivating social connectivity and community through technology, and by providing emergency financial assistance to veterans in-need.
