At 18, Jade went to Texas to enroll in college, but her mother would not sign the loan paperwork to fund her tuition. When she returned to Los Angeles, her mother had moved and would not allow Jade to live with her. Alone and filled with anxiety and depression, Jade turned to drugs to self-medicate. Now living on the streets, she became part of the fastest growing population in Los Angeles County: young adults experiencing homelessness, many of whom have untreated mental health conditions.
Fortunately for Jade, she found her way to Daniel’s Places, where she found comfort and support from caring friends and therapists who have sustained her through her struggles.
Jade now lives in her own apartment in Hollywood, works at a department store, and plans to complete a Peer Specialist program at Loyola Marymount University. Your support made the difference in Jade’s life.

Dear Supporters, Volunteers and Trusted Community Partners,
We wanted to take a moment to let you know Step Up is actively monitoring the COVID-19 status in the communities we work. We are relieved to report that as of this writing, there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 in the Step Up Community. Step Up is taking measures to both protect employees' health and welfare, and to advance its critical mission to serve its most at-risk members. During this time, members will continue to need our support and we expect to continue to provide the exemplary level of support and services we have become known for in our community.
In an abundance of caution, Step Up is taking the following immediate steps to curtail the spread of the virus and to keep its staff, members and volunteers as safe and as healthy as possible during this period of unknown impact:
While many public and private spaces have curtailed operations for the time being, Step Up will remain operational and will continue serving its clients. Again, it is important to note that NO ONE IN THE STEP UP COMMUNITY HAS TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID-19. Our goal is to keep it that way for as long as possible.
Please contact us by email or phone before coming to one of our locations. Support from our community is especially vital now as operations are re-aligned to adhere to our mission while keeping staff, members and volunteers safe. Please consider making a donation as we work through this difficult time. Your contributions in any amount ensure that Step Up will continue serving our most vulnerable neighbors, who are especially vulnerable during this community health crisis. Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.
Stay safe and healthy,Tod LipkaPresident & CEO
