Homelight Family Living Adopt-a-Fam

THANK YOU!!! To everyone that has contributed to this cause.   We have officially met our fundraising goal of $1,500.  We are increasing our goal to $2,000 so that we can help this family with some gift cards to various stores (gas cards, Target, etc.). 

With a strong emphasis on achieving self-sufficiency through accountability, our families are given the opportunity to live in a clean, safe, learning environment where they can create a new life for themselves and their children.
Because of the substantial increase in homeless families, The Midnight Mission established its Family Living program in 1994.  Located in a safe residential area in Los Angeles, The HomeLight Family Living Program consists of 11 renovated, fully furnished apartments.  Thanks to our generous supporters, HomeLight provides more than just a safe residence for families shattered by abuse, addiction, poverty and hopelessness.  It provides a comprehensive path to becoming healthy, happy and self-sufficient.  Victims of domestic violence, human trafficking, and those dealing with issues of sobriety and other unthinkable circumstances can find solace in knowing that HomeLight is a safe place where families can recuperate and be restored to a self-sufficient life.  Families who are accepted into HomeLight typically live with us for one year, providing time to stabilize and plan, moving forward in a structured environment.  Family members receive individualized plans for their transition to independent living, which include mental health therapy, job preparedness and family reunification.

SoCalGas has been invited to participate in the Homelight Adopt-a-Family program this year.  SoCalGas will be adopting a Mother/Daughter family, Gladys Gonzalez and her 12 year old daughter Evelyn Godinez.  

As part of our ongoing volunteerism at The Midnight Mission, I wanted to invite all of you to an opportunity to participate in this event.  We are trying to raise $1,500, so that we can get this family everything on their wish list this Christmas.  We do have a tight schedule to raise the funding, purchase gifts, wrap gifts and deliver them on 12/11 at their annual holiday celebration.

Thank you for your consideration!
