Lancaster Station deputies responded to a call at a school in Lake Los Angeles and were told three children slept in a vehicle the night prior.  Deputies contacted the father and verified he and his children were unhoused and in the process of attempting to get resources, however they were days if not weeks out from receiving services.  Deputies recalled a recent email for a new program providing housing vouchers under certain circumstances which was created by a local non-profit organization, Voices of Our Youth.  Van Roberts and Teri Harrison from Voices of Our Youth (VOY) were notified of the intention to utilize two of the two-bed one-night vouchers for the family.
 
This is when something truly special happened.
 
VOY transported the family from the Lake Los Angeles Sheriff's Sub Station to our “Streets to Suites” voucher program hotel. VOY Outreach, Virgina Love, joined them at the hotel.
 
VOY reached out to fellow community leaders and organizations to provide support for this young Latino father with three daughters. VOY’s goal was to assist this family in finding a path towards security and well-being.
 
Mental Health America Los Angeles’s (MHALA) Jennifer Melendez, Jannette Rinkenberger, and Pamela Jones promptly provided the family with two weeks of housing assistance, as well as food, clothing, and toys for the girls.

Miguel Coronado, founder of Agents of Change, was contacted to offer guidance and mentorship to the father. Jacqueline Diaz-Fontana, from the Erick A Garcia “You Are Enough” Foundation, came to engage with the children, providing them support, a maternal presence, and mentorship.

Duana Garrett, the proprietor of Little People Childcare in Lancaster, offered full-day daycare at no extra cost. The childcare center even provided uniforms for the kids.
 
We are humbled to have the support and ability to help put those in need with organizations that will support and uplift them.  We understand there are many more who need help and are focusing on partnering with organizations that share the same drive to help.  Together we can make the Antelope Valley a better place.
