"TO AID IN PROVIDING CARE AND HOPE TO THE HOMELESS CHILDREN OF LOS ANGELES
COUNTY, FOCUSING ON GIVING THEM A NEW AND REAL CHANCE TO PROSPER IN
• Abundant Hope is a non-profit organization formed in August
of 2009 by three college students, David Davis, Nicole Fulk,
and Jeanette Sario. We share a deep concern about
homeless children in Los Angeles, California and we hope to
change the hearts and minds of the local community to get
involved and start a trend in America to really tackle
homelessness. According to LAHSA, "Approximately 15% of
these, or 10,100 are children under the age of 18[are
homeless in LA county]."
Corporate Description Cont'd...
• Abundant Hope believes that no child should be left behind
nor do they deserve to live a lifestyle in such poor conditions.
Together we want to help support those in need by simply
providing them with food, clothing, and shelter. In addition to
monetary donations, every year we will train up to 10,000
volunteers to aid and help educate the children as well as their
families, so that together they can rise above poverty and
have a better future.
• Abundant Hope will provide a means for food, shelter, medical
aid, and education. Our primary means of substantially
curbing homelessness will be through public events, activities,
and public forum presentations where we will draw advocates
from academia, corporations, churches, familes, as we seek
to change the "hearts and minds" of society regarding the
growing issue of homelessness.
• Our target will be children up to the age of 18
• Our primary means of operation will be through monitery
donations, and volunteer groups.
• We will be based in the homeless area known as Skidd Row
the most heavily populated homless are in Los Angeles.
• 92% of donation's will go into our operations, 4% will go
towards management and general fees and 4% will go
• Our value will be in our ability to cooperate with other
organizations as a team and in our vision to engage the
citizens of L.A. in the process. We believe our passion to win
hearts and minds of the people will set an example for other
places who face the same problem. We also want to make
sure that future generations are taken care of.
Goals and Objectives
• Five Year Plan
o By year one, we plan to create a partnership with LAPD and
Los Angeles county school district to identify children that may
be very close to homelessness or who are currently homeless.
We want to be able to help 40% of this newly identified
homeless youth population by providing them with either food,
clothing, or shelter by this first year.
o By year two, we hope to increase donation income by 25% by
using networking and our current sources.
o By year three, we want to increase our volunteer base by 30%
o By year four, we plan to reach out to the parents of the
homeless children and help them with job training and
o By year five, we hope to actually lower the population of
homeless children by 15%.
