About Homeward LA: Homeward LA is a 10-day citywide event where multiple productions of monologues,
based on stories from people who have been homeless, are performed all over Los Angeles, bringing attention
to the homeless crisis and raising funds for The Midnight Mission, a nonprofit organization on Skid Row
committed to ending homelessness. The inaugural productions were staged in 2018 and were seen by nearly
2,000 people, raising over $55,000 for The Midnight Mission. Founder, Jason Lesner describes his inspiration
for Homeward LA, “As a writer, I’ve always believed that people connect through stories, that we see the
humanity in each other through the sharing of stories. I also knew we had a great entertainment and theatre
community in Los Angeles, and I felt if I gave that community an opportunity to spread real stories from people
who have been homeless, they would jump at the chance, and the community would be inspired to do more. To
find out more about Homeward LA visit their website and social media pages, or

About the Midnight Mission: Founded in 1914, The Midnight Mission offers paths to self-sufficiency to men,
women, and children who have lost direction. Their emergency services and 12-step recovery, family living, job
training, education and workforce development programs offer a compassionate bridge to achieve and maintain
healthy, productive lives. The Midnight Mission provides an environment that removes obstacles and provides
the accountability and structure that people who are experiencing homelessness need to be productive in their
communities. The conviction and commitment of the men and women to their success defines The Midnight
Mission. For additional information, please visit
