Wayfarer 1:1 Program

Support the mission of United Way of Greater Los Angeles by volunteering today with The Wayfarer Foundation!

Wayfarer 1:1 grew out of our desire to help our neighbors on Skid Row lead better, healthier and happier lives. We saw over and over again how the journey from life on the streets to employment, education and housing was long and treacherous, and we saw too many people lose hope along the way.

We saw that those who did succeed, who were able to improve their lives, never did it alone. And an idea was born...

What if each of us reached out to one person, got to know them, listened to their stories, laughed together and built a real friendship? What if we did this in the spirit of hope, dignity and love that all people deserve —no judgements, no expectations, but together as equals? And then what if we brought the collective knowledge of all the partners we know from the Carnival of Love to help our friends improve their lives?

What we need now are 100 volunteers to join us.

Wayfarer 1:1 will support these volunteers emotionally, financially and with the resources they need to make a lasting change in someone's life. This program will be a game changer for our neighbors on Skid Row and will change lives.
