    An unusual settlement was opened at the beginning of February in LA. Its main goal is to address the needs of the homeless.

    A colorful land

    The Hope of The Valley organization was founded in 2009 in Los Angeles. It was set up to fight the problems of homelessness and poverty by helping the people who badly needed help. At the moment the organization runs 9 shelters, 2 aid centers and a centre of professional activation. Moreover, they supply 1,500 meals every day and provide 506 beds in a number of locations. Now, thanks to the village, the list is even longer.

    The village is also pet-friendly, which is important for the homeless as animals are often their only companions
