GET INVOLVED IN THE BOMA/GLA Homeless and Community Awareness Committee

The BOMA/GLA Homeless and Community Awareness Committee serves to “promote the interests of commercial real estate while creating greater understanding of issues surrounding homelessness.” 

The committee is focused on the following tasks: 

  • Learn more about the various laws and policies surrounding property rights and the treatment of the homeless in order to provide input to elected officials and policy makers; 

  • Collaborate with organizations to more effectively develop initiatives to address homelessness; 

  • Identify and communicate volunteer opportunities for both building management staff and tenants so they can assist the homeless population in their area; 

  • Keep members informed with up-to-date information on public policy changes and ways for members to engage on the homeless issue around the county.

Events

My Friends Place
BOMA/GLA and it's members came together in 2017 to provide and serve lunch for teens and staff at My Friends Place.

 

Downtown Womens Center
BOMA/GLA's Homelessness and Community Awareness Committee was pleased to work with our members on a community service event for January 2018.  The event was a half day of service at the Downtown Women's Center ("DWC") in Downtown Los Angeles.  We were limited to 24 volunteers and it was a packed house!  Some of us cooked and served lunch for the women's center to over 200 people and the rest sorted through hundreds of clothes items to help the staff.
