APRIL 6, 2019

Thank you to all of our guests, sponsors and underwriters of Ending Youth Homelessness 2019! We are overwhelmed with gratitude at the incredible generosity and love shown by our community. More than 500 supporters attended this special, sold-out evening to celebrate our youth and honor our 2019 champions: Halsey, Lee Daniels, Maddie & Mackenzie Ziegler and ModCloth. With your partnership, we raised an extraordinary $500,000, which will allow us to continue providing vital, transformative programming that provides our young people with support and resources as they build lives of wellness, stability, and self-sufficiency.

None of our work would possible without you, and we are eternally grateful for the role you play in helping us build a world where youth experiencing homelessness feel seen, understood and valued. On behalf of all of us at My Friend's Place-Board of Directors, staff, and young people-thank you for your commitment to ending youth homelessness.

To see highlights from the event, be sure to check out our social media (Facebook, Instagram) as we share updates throughout the coming week.


If you are interested in learning more about how you can support our young people through volunteer opportunities, corporate partnerships, or community engagement, please contact Francine Rios at or (323) 908-0011 ext. 124.



For one special night, more than 500 leaders, community members and advocates will come together to celebrate My Friend's Place and the champions of our community who create transformative opportunities for youth experiencing homelessness. An evening of festivities that includes entertainment, dining and auctions, Ending Youth Homelessness will bring Los Angeles together to celebrate and invest in making brighter futures possible for homeless youth.

The My Friend's Place annual gala has raised millions of dollars over the last five years to support services and programs that help homeless youth move toward wellness, stability and self-sufficiency. Past honorees include Miley Cyrus and The Happy Hippie Foundation, Instagram, Alice Waters, John Paul Dejoria, Lionsgate, Jon Cryer, and Cirque du Soleil, among other amazing champions in our community.

Take a look back at our 2018 Gala, which was an incredible night celebrating 30 years of impact in the lives of young people experiencing homelessness.
