New Image Emergency Homeless Shelter Has a Positive Impact

I was honored to recently visit New Image Emergency Homeless shelter in Central Los Angeles. Twin sisters Lynda Moran and Brenda Wilson are doing an amazing job assisting homeless and low-income individuals from Skid Row and other areas of the City. Their dedication has brought real support to the most underserved people in our communities. Offering an array of services, such as counseling, shelter, hot showers, three meals a day and medical services, New Image serves runaway youth, homeless families with children, people with disabilities and those living with HIV/AIDS, to name a few. New Image has had an incredibly positive impact in our community and I was humbled to be able to witness that firsthand. For that, I want to commend Lynda and Brenda for their amazing work.
