You are tired and poor and hungry and most importantly a parent in a family on Skid Row. Services are plentiful but hard to understand, what do you qualify for, how do you apply, is there a waiting list?
It can be overwhelming.
Breathe and keep reading. The LA COUNTY DPSS has Welfare Workers (called EW’s) located near you.
MIDNIGHT MISSION from 7 am to 6 pm call 213-624-9258×1549
UNION RESCUE MISSION from 7 a.m. to 5 pm call 213-347-6300×1611 or x1613.
These workers are stationed in the shelters on skid row and can help you even if your case is in another area – like Pasadena or Downy. These workers will call your current worker and co-ordinate services.
We get that it is hard to be homeless and do all the forms required of you. Come over and ask for help.
