He walks the streets of Skid Row, with a warm smile, giving people hugs and handing out a few dollars. The few dollars that he has. Not long ago, Levi was homeless. Drug addiction nearly ruined his life. He lived on these very streets of Skid Row. Laying in filth, feces, and urine because all he cared about was smoking crack cocaine. What turned his life around was when he entered the program at the LA Mission. “I never knew my daddy, he left us when I was 2 years old. But I know I have a heavenly father who loves me.” Now Levi’s addiction is to love and care for the people around him. Especially those in need. “I wasted nearly my whole life being addicted to drugs. I had a stroke and a heart attack, but I’m still here for a reason. I want to dedicate whatever time I have left in my life to love others.”
People often message me asking how they can donate to support and be a part of what I do. I've never been one to ask for donations, but it definitely comes in handy.
Each person on Skid Row is unique and has their own unique circumstances, so it's hard to anticipate how to address people's needs before I meet them. So having some extra funds gives me more flexibility as to how I can help others.
If you're one of these people who has it in their heart to contribute in this way, this donate button is just a more convenient way to do so. Thank you for your support!
