  • Harvardwood Helps: Wednesday Night Dinner with SELAH

    Wednesday, February 19, 2020 at 04:00 PM
    Silver Lake Community Church in Los Angeles, CA

    Harvardwood Helps is planning a volunteer event this month in partnership with SELAH Neighborhood Homeless Coalition. We’ll be serving a hot meal to people experiencing homelessness and people in need in the Silver Lake area. It’s an easy volunteer activity and it’s a great way to connect with our community. You can sign up to prepare a food item and/or sign up to volunteer. We’ll set up, serve, chat with attendees and then clean up. The whole thing is less than three hours and it’s really a rewarding event.

    We will need about 10 volunteers to cover the following for 50 people:

    About Selah

    SELAH was founded on May 5th, 2017, over many cups of coffee and after a months-long deep dive to see how our city and our community were responding to the homelessness crisis in Los Angeles.

    Our goal was to take an active, compassionate, solutions-oriented approach to helping our neighbors. The SELAH launch party was held on May 22nd, where we invited homeless activists, nonprofits, local service providers, elected officials, and eager volunteers to meet up and commit to be being part of the solution to this crisis.

    Our first official event took place May 27 where the passionate and long-time activist Rebecca Prine from Recycled Resources provided our group of 20+ volunteers with four-hour homeless engagement training. We learned the root causes of homelessness, some of the services that are available, and we left equipped us with the best strategies for engagement.
