Stories from Skid Row | Ralph & Tokoyo

Homelessness is hard for anyone experiencing it. But it's especially hard on single dads with kids, two-parent families with kids, and families with teenagers.

We hope you will take a moment to watch this video of such a family. Ralph and his son, Tokoyo struggled with homelessness for five years after Hurricane Katrina robbed them of everything. Thanks to our caring supporters though, this precious family was given the chance to start over.

Most rescue missions in LA County are unable to offer families like Ralph's the help they need. In fact, Union Rescue Mission is the only mission that offers help to single men, single women, single moms with children, single dads with children, two-parent families with children, and families with teenagers.

On behalf of every mother, father, son, and daughter here at the Mission, thank you for your compassion.
