Homeless Health Care of Los Angeles is always finding ways to bring awareness to the topic of Opioid Overdoses and how to prevent or treat them. A situation that seems to be increasing and predominant amongst the homeless community in and around Los Angeles. HHCLA hosted a one of a kind art gallery exhibition, live music, dinner and a recognition ceremony at Space Camp 30, a few steps away from HHCLA's Skid Row location. Below are photos of the afternoon/evening.

Such a great turnout that evening. People were recognized for their valiant efforts to combat poverty in the cities of LA. I hope you've enjoyed my little stroll down memory lane. But alas, off to bed. SAYONARA, DASVEDANIA, Goughtentav.
