When you buy Skidrow Fashion Week you are directly funding the transformation of Skid
Row, Los Angeles from a space synonymous with neglect to a beacon of hope and healing.
Our programs are designed to provide for the immediate, longterm, physical, spiritual, and
emotional needs of Skid Row's residents. We are on the ground every day in Skidrow, with
the same individuals who design SRFW clothing running the programs you see below.
Our giving model is dynamic. Needs and resources are assessed on a rolling basis, with
specific programs 'activated' based on where we can do the most good with what we've
generated in a given period. Together, these programs form an interconnected community
capable not only of reducing homelessness in our community but eradicating it.

Our Homme Less program provides home goods and furnishings to those who have
recently transitioned from homelessness to permanent housing. More than just a physical
space, a home is a source of comfort, reflection, and recovery. We provide comforters and
the other essentials that allow individuals to feel that they are residents and owners of the
spaces they occupy.

The Church of Light is a transdenominational congregation open to all who wish to expand
and engage spiritually in a space free from judgement and dogma. Through group
mediation, affirmative prayer, and life visioning the congregation is understood as both a
physical and conceptual spiritual community. Open to all, said community consists of both
those who are residents of Skid Row and those who are not.

The holiday season can be a particularly difficult time for those living on the streets,
especially for families with small children. Skidrow Fashion Week believes sincerely that
bringing a sense of normalcy and community into the lives of those experiencing
homelessness is as important as the material support provided by our other programs.
Every year San Julian Park is turned into a winter wonderland and Skidrow Fashion Week
founder David Sabastian into Santa himself. Toys are handed out to children, residents come
together, and no one goes without a Christmas on Skid Row.

Lovesgiving is held on the fourth Thursday of November every year in San Julian Park, the
heart of Skid Row. Last Lovesgiving, over 200 homeless families were fed while
simultaneously spreading love, hope, family, and joy. Volunteers, international corporations,
and Hollywood notables all come together to provide the time, resources, and funding to
ensure no one is without family and love on a day that's defined by both.

The POC Foundation is the cumulative mission of Skidrow Fashion Week, a home for the
homeless and the programs that serve them. A campus-style center blossoming from the
corner of Main & Pico, the POC Foundation will have the facilities to provide training,
education, housing, employment, guidance, and healing to those experiencing
homelessness. Its model of radical rehabilitation will serve as a blueprint for other campuses
across America and the world.
