DEAP (Dream Endlessly, Actively Pursue) Charity Event at the Covenant House for Homeless Youth in Hollywood.
This weekend we were so honored and blessed to serve the Covenant House, an emergency shelter for youth 18-21 in the Hollywood area. It provides case management, resources, housing, free clinic, education services, and employment resources to help youth get back on their own feet.
The event had so much to it; a huge clothing drive, professional make-up and hair artists, a henna tattoo artist, many musical performances, encouraging guests speakers, a raffle and more. It was so awesome to see the girls faces light up as they looked in the mirror after getting their hair and make-up done and had put on a gown for a night of fun. There were many volunteers from all different organizations and industries. Throughout the night an electric slide dance line formed and we danced the night away.
