December Social Action

Nashuva is coordinating a drive (initiated by Renata Robins) for items for S.P.Y.  (Safe Place for Youth)

Donated items will be collected at the December 7th, Friday Night Service


Youth homelessness is a sobering problem — there are approximately 6,150 homeless youth on the streets any given night in LA County, and it is only getting worse.

Safe Place for Youth is an organization that strives to inspire change in young people’s lives by engaging, building trust and providing care and support.  Their robust continuum of care addresses the unique needs of this population through assertive street outreach, low barrier drop-in services, health and wellness programming, case management and education and employment services.  S.P.Y. is unique in its non-judgmental setting and dedication to you (ages 12 – 25).
