On Friday, November 3rd, HomeAid Los Angeles presents the screening of the feature documentary MIGHTY GROUND followed by a performance by its Star RONALD TROY COLLINS and Urban Renewal Project - outdoors on the lawn at Playa Vista Central Park.
All proceeds benefit HomeAid Los Angeles and Mighty Ground. $15.00 ticket donation requested per person. Food trucks will be available at the park. Be sure to bring chairs, blankets and jackets for this one-of-a-kind evening in honor of Homeless Awareness Month.
There are more than 57,000 homeless people in Los Angeles; MIGHTY GROUND (www.mightyground.com) is the story of one of them. In the film, Ronald Troy Collins makes his way through the days by singing to people on the streets of downtown Los Angeles. As with most of the homeless, Ronald is nearly invisible to the majority of passers-by. But those who stop to listen find themselves captivated by the depth of his prophetic voice, and by the mystical songs he composes on the spot and directs at the listener’s soul.
Enchanted, these listeners find themselves making a deep and unfathomable connection with Ronald that crosses racial and economic lines. This is exactly what happened to producer Aimee Schoof in January of 2016. What began as a random encounter on a downtown LA street quickly turned into a tale of vitality, heartbreak and ultimately, redemption for all involved.
Mature audience due to drug material and pervasive language.
The event is taking place Friday, November 3rd from 6:00-8:00PM at The Bandshell at Campus Central Park, West Waterfront Drive, Playa Vista, CA 90094Tickets are available here: TICKETS
HomeAid (www.HomeAid.org) is a leading national non-profit provider of housing for today's homeless. The organization builds and renovates multi-unit shelters for America's homeless families and individuals through local chapters in 17 markets across the country, each working with the local building industry to give back to the community. HomeAid launched its Los Angeles chapter (HALA; www.homeaidla.org) last year.
HomeAid Los Angeles (HALA) delivers unparalleled expertise and an all-hands-on-deck approach to LA’s housing crisis. An initiative of teams of developers, expert at aligning with local and national builders and local homeless service agencies, HALA brings a unique approach to rehabbing and building shelters, duplexes and permanent supportive housing units. By partnering with HALA, a housing project can be built or renovated at a cost savings of 50% over typical rates. This allows HALA’s service provider partners to create housing that otherwise could not be built. Currently, HALA has three housing projects underway that will provide housing for Los Angeles homeless.
