Good Evening #SheDoes Warriors!

Tomorrow morning we will be meeting at 7am at 404 South Figueroa St, Los Angeles CA 90071. This is front of the Bonaventure pictured on this post. The cross streets are 5th & Figueroa. There is parking all around the hotel but it is expensive. It is easier too arrive by metro or Uber. The 7th street Metro station is only 2 blocks away!

Please try to get there early. We need a presence early when the pastors start to arrive. We will have signs ready. Please dress warm as it will be cold.

This will be a completely peaceful prayer vigil!

Thank you!

Hoping someone can help me, as I know Claudia is exceptionally busy. I have had a large box of mostly men's clothing in excellent/very good condition. In the past, I was able to meet someone from the organization to give things to them locally. I cannot get downtown. I am in the SGV but I work in Santa Monica, Burbank & Encino so I can meet someone along the way if there's anyone who can help. After 3 months the person who was letting me store these donations is insisting I get them out and I would like it to go to L.A. on cloud9. Thanks! ... See MoreSee Less

On Thursday, we received an email requesting help by the American Red Cross. There was a fire on 2/14 and it displaced close to 50 people.

We are always helping our community and Disaster relief efforts are something we have been doing these past couple years. We gathered donations and dropped them off yesterday after our Street Outreach with Sunburst Youth Academy, two of their graduates from Class 19 and Class 20 helped us as well. This is all made possible by our supporters, donors, sponsors and volunteers. Every time a disaster strikes, you guys respond and make it all happen. We have worked with Red Cross before to provide the necessities they don't provide and we will continue to work together as long as it benefits the people in need.

Thank you Operation Blankets of Love for providing blankets and dog food. Your donations to LA on Cloud9 helps us help many families and yesterday, it helped on this disaster relief effort.

Thank you for your monetary donations, for sending us items through our Amazon wish list and for cleaning out your closet. Every little bit helps and us at Cloud9 make sure that your donations go where they are meant to go. Have a blessed day

Respectfully,
Claudia Perez

Hit the streets yesterday morning in South Central L.A., helping our homeless community, proudly lead by Sunburst Youth Academy, 4th Platoon Firehawks Class 21, a military based school. Together, we are proud to help these young minds understand the meaning and importance of service to community, and how simple it is to deliver compassion and hope to those in their time of suffering and despair.

Our goal is to empower teens to make a difference in their community. We teach the youth the importance of compassion and selflessness, and also motivate them to pursue their goals and dreams after high school.

My message to our youth is simple: No matter what you do in life, live a life of giving and compassion. Always give back to the community, and make a difference.

The #SheDoes Vision for Sheltering 1000 Homeless Women By August 2018

This is our vision of how we hope to see the implementation of an extra 1000 Shelter beds in Los Angeles. This focuses not only on the City of LA but the whole County.

1.Transform 2 currently operational winter shelters from 3 months per year to be operational 365 days an year. This would add an additional 300 to 400 much needed emergency Shelter beds to the current number of available beds.

2.Open a 3rd shelter by June exclusively for women with no substance abuse issues or mental illness. One of the biggest obstacles to placing women or anyone in shelter is the prevalence of mental illness and substance abuse issues among current shelter populations. The working homeless is one of the highest rising populations and they need shelter that accomodates their work schedules and a need for quiet rest.

3.Open a shelter by July for women above 62. Older women are also a fast rising and visible demographic in LA homelessness. These women need unique requirements that comes with age. Having these women share a space among their same age group as well as needs will create a sense of belonging as well as comfort for each other.

4. Open 3 shelters in August. One for victims of Domestic violence and sex trafficking. These women have very unique safety issues as well as high exposure to trauma.

2nd shelter in August will be for women with children as this is another rising homeless demographic.

3rd shelter in August will be for women with pets. Many women on our streets who are victims of physical or Sexual violence are closely bonded to their animal companions. Due to their trauma, this strong companionship is something they refuse to give up. This shelter would accomodate this specific population.

The first 2 shelters are to be kept as a transitional shelters open to everyone from which women will be integrated into the other 5 shelters depending on their needs. All women will be treated with Trauma Informed Care. This is an approach which treats the individual taking into account their exposure to past trauma and is much needed and highly successful.

The #SheDoes campaign is about bringing much needed shelter to the women on the streets of LA. It is not limited to any one organization, nor will we emphasize the needs of any one organization. As of now, in addition to Monday Night Mission and L.A. on Cloud9 we have the active support of Pauly's Project, A Million Drops and Operation Healthy Hearts. We welcome anyone and any organization to join us in promoting #SheDoes.

Please understand that as long as our children are exposed to seeing women living in tents and abused, sexual violence will only be normalized within our future generations of Los Angeles.

Please consider making a post for the #SheDoes campaign tomorrow in honor of Valentine's Day asking for shelter, dignity and protection for the homeless women of Los Angeles.

Please sign the petition asking Mayor Garcetti to shelter 1000 homeless women by August 2018: bit.ly/2Ei9bF1
