Virtual mentors at Imagine LA: Donations matched through April 3

| April 1, 2020 | 0 Comments

MENTORSHIP goes online.

Life will return to normal, eventually, and events, parties and galas will be on social calendars once more. Meanwhile, events are being postponed, some as late as the fall as other priorities take precedence.

Family Emergency Fund

Windsor Village resident and Imagine LA’s CEO Jill Govan Bauman said the nonprofit is growing its Family Emergency Investment Fund (FEIF) by seeking to raise $150,000 by April 24.

Through April 3, donations up to $50,000 will be matched by Karisma Foundation to help families pay rent and buy groceries.


The group also has pivoted to a Virtual Mentorship Program for the duration of COVID-19 with an online application, phone interview and live webinar training.

“We currently have a backlog of family members who are mentor-ready, especially boys ages 10-15,” said Brian Rosenbaum, director of community engagement.

“If you have 6-8 hours a month, a heart full of compassion and an open mind, you can mentor a family that has overcome homelessness and is eager to build relationships, skills, and confidence with you.”
