EVERY PENNY HAS A STORY
SAVE A PENNY is a social enterprise focused on telling the
stories of the unheard.
With every purchase, a job is provided as well as empowerment for homeless youth all over Los Angeles. In 2017 we employed 98 young adults without homes or employment.
The reason we are called SAVE A PENNY is because we may walk past pennies every day forgetting the value of one penny. One penny, we can’t buy anything but with many, we can buy much, in the same we want to remind our community of the importance of our youth.
It’s time to save our homeless youth and remind them of their worth.
We believe in the power of STORIES, behind every story their lives power! We teach our youth to use their story as their gift!
WITH EVERY PURCHASE, YOU PROVIDE EMPLOYMENT & JOB SKILLS TRAINING FOR AN INDIVIDUAL IN NEED.
SAVE A PENNY work in the Los Angeles area to employ youth experiencing homelessness as well as aged out foster youth.
Young people aging out of foster care systems often do not have the life skills necessary to help ease the way from foster care to adulthood. Therefore they experience higher degrees of incarceration, poverty, homelessness, and suicide.
