My name is Rebecca Prine and I am the director of Recycled Resources for the Homeless, a small nonprofit agency located Highland Park. We are staffed entirely by volunteers and operate a zero percent profit margin. Our organization works to improve the lives of those chronically homeless in North East Los Angeles. We outreach and engage those homeless in Cypress Park, Glassell Park, Highland Park, Eagle Rock, and El Sereno. Currently we are trying to educate people about the need for homeless services in our neighborhood as there is no homeless access service center located in North East Los Angeles.
I am trying to reach anyone that may be interested in supporting our mission as well as educate people through newspapers, discussions, or meetings about the homeless population in our area and the need for services. If you could please take a moment and look at our website it will give you a better idea of what we do and who we are.
We host outreach events once a month to check on those homeless in this area, offer food clothing and hygiene products as well as bus tokens and maps to access services needed to improve their current situations.
