About the Founder of Roof A Youth Foundation

I started the Roof A Youth foundation to help young people after learning that in LA County nearly 5000 unaccompanied minors and youth between the ages of 12-25 fend for themselves every night in the streets without a parent or place to call home. 


The homeless youth population has a major disparity, with African American youth followed by Latino youth making up a strong majority of the population. To help resolve the issue I have begun building relationships with organizations and elected officials who have a strong focus on helping undeserved communities. 


My organization has three board members and kind people who volunteer to help us achieve our goals. Everyday we work hard to expand and grow our organization to help better service the community.
