A powerful documentary that showcases a group of talented men and women from LA's Skid Row who strive to create art, no matter how humble their circumstances.
Throughout KCET's airing of Humble Beauty, the night will be devoted to encouraging viewers to help the homeless. When viewers donate $60 or more to KCET, in lieu of a thank you gift from the station a percentage of their donation will be used to purchase life-changing supplies such as food, clothing, and toiletries to the individuals and families under these circumstances.
Hosted by Socal Connected's Val Zavala and author Leyla Farah, the fundraiser will feature various guests, including actor and board member of The Midnight Mission Ed Begley Jr, along with Humble Beauty producers Judith Vogelsang and Letitia Popa Schwartz.
KCET is committed to ensuring that the community members most at risk have the opportunity for a better life.
About The Midnight Mission:
Since 1914, The Midnight Mission has provided myriad services to the people of Skid Row and the greater Los Angeles area. Their objective is to work with homeless individuals and families to help remove obstacles to self-sufficiency, while ensuring that immediate needs like food, shelter, and clothing are met. They operate a drug and alcohol recovery program that offers a bridge to self-sufficiency through counseling, education, job training and placement. They also provide safe transitional housing to homeless families at our Family Housing Complex.
Their goal is to remove the obstacles for these homeless men, women and children who seek their support. Their services are made possible through the support of generous donors.
