It was such a privilege to serve alongside the Counsil of Pakistan today at the downtown mission. They did a great job of organizing people to hand out donations of blankets, towels, beanies, and socks to everyone who came by to eat. Seeing some many people with huge hearts and big smiles was exactly what we needed gearing up for the end of 2018!!
Thank you @c3losangeles !!!! Today they are having more signups to stock pantries for our formerly homeless neighbors. If you want to join the efforts, email firstname.lastname@example.org. 🙌🏼🙌🏼 #c3losangeles #welcomehome
Without our partners - GoBe wouldn’t be possible. Thank you @ladreamcenter for sharing your parking lot!!! It looks like empty boxes, but if you keep staring you can see the changed lives just inside...
Our Mayor, Eric Garcetti, has rolled out a new initiative to build temporary immediate housing for our homeless on the street to live in while they await their future permanent homes. He has allotted 20 million dollars to see this happen! This initiative would use city property that is currently not being used well or at all to create these shelters in each of the council districts. The challenge is that as we all know well, people come out much more often for what they are 'against' verses what we are 'for'. Signing this petition creates concrete data that our communities do see the value and this and support it. Please, join GoBe and Eric Garcetti in seeing Bridge to Home come to reality. You can sign at http://tiny.cc/amoveforlife It takes less than 3 minutes to sign, but makes the world of difference to our city. THANK YOU! @realityla @oasisla @c3losangeles @prismchurchpasadena @pacificcrossroads @ladreamcenter @hillsong
We had a great turnout today with the Williams Foundation in San Bernardino, Crossroads Pacific Church, and Hope For LA providing 28 Welcome Home Kits for youth entering into housing for the first time! Welcome Home - the church of LA loves you! 💜 #welcomehome #gobethe1 @hopeforla @pacificcrossroads @intensiveservices
We had an incredible morning partnering our Los Angeles churches with our LAPD Hope Teams!! A huge thank you goes out to our amazing churches who said yes and came together today side by side to serve our city. It was an honor to present 100 boxes to our Hope Teams and know that this is just the beginning! What a fun and inspiring day!!!! #lapdhopeteams #gobethe1 #unity #loveourcity @realityla @c3losangeles @ladreamcenter @angelustemplela @prismchurchpasadena @oasisla @lapdhq @mayorofla @lapdmta
So honored to be here and inspired by everything we’ve heard today at the Pastors Luncheons for the foster and child abuse crisis here in Los Angeles. Learned that over half of the kids who age out of the foster care system end up either homeless or in prison. Was also shocked to know California has more children in the foster system than other state, and half of those are in Los Angeles County. Church, we have to do something about this... dm us to get more info on how we can step into this crisis and Go Be the difference. We are standing ready to connect you. #standingready #fostercare #dreamcenter #olivecrest #bethe1
And date night baskets for @olive.crest foster care families are out! Thank you to our generous volunteers and people who stand beside GoBe!! #fosterfamilies #merrychristmas #blessed #partners
GoBe had the absolute privilege of being the bridge between our incredibly generous friends and our new partners at Olive Crest. It was so much fun today to hand over a $2,500 check to bless every foster parent they have with a date night out! These parents work so hard and sacrifice so much every single day. We are honored to stand behind them and send encouragement! #fosterfamily #fostercare #olivecrest #donations #blessing @olive.crest @rebekahweigel

Looking forward to our Welcome Home Kits from @realityla to start rolling in. A fee weeks ago we had the privilege of setting up at their outreach day and had over 30 people sign up to fill a welcome home kit!!!! It’s amazing to watch churches step up and their people to start taking matters into their own hands. This is what real church is. Awesome. #thankyou #welcomehome #gobethe1 #missionssunday #realityla
