PATH (People Assisting The Homeless) is honored to receive a $30,000 grant from Bank of America to advance their mission to end homelessness for individuals, families, and communities. Through PATH’s comprehensive program and services, they work to help people experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles County secure housing and gain independence.
Homelessness disproportionally impacts communities of color. PATH’s work is focused on addressing the underlying causes of this continued inequity and provides services focus on serving the most vulnerable in our communities.
“We need everyone to work together to truly address the housing and homelessness crises in Los Angeles,” said Jennifer Hark Dietz, CEO, PATH. “Bank of America is a valued partner in this work. The grant will allow us to build upon and continue providing solutions that we know work—outreach, interim housing, case management, and, of course, permanent supportive housing.”
Renewed funding from Bank of America supports PATH’s comprehensive services including street outreach, intensive case management, benefits enrollment, rapid re-housing, housing location and placement assistance, and links to medical and mental healthcare—providing our clients with the resources they need to become self-sufficient and achieve stable, permanent housing. The grant is aligned with Bank of America’s broader efforts to help advance racial equality and economic opportunity through a $1.25 billion commitment over five years focused on health, jobs and reskilling, affordable housing, and small business.
“PATH does an incredible job providing shelter, life-saving services for the unhoused and programs to help end homelessness. It is important for the private sector play a role in helping alleviate homelessness and get people back on stable economic footing,” said Raul Anaya, President, Bank of America Los Angeles.
