Julian Omidi is co-founder of No More Poverty. Through No More Poverty Julian Omidi and his brother Michael Omidi have been able to provide support to various charitable organizations that combat poverty.
Unfortunately the South Central District of Los Angeles is plagued by drugs, crime, prostitution, and gangs, but the fact of the matter is that honest, hard-working people work there as well. They want to provide their children with an opportunity to get out but they can’t afford to relocate. Many children turn to these illegal activities because they feel they have no other choice or opportunity to get by. These are the real effects that poverty has on real people.
Luckily, there are people that spend their time and efforts providing the youth of this area with alternatives and opportunities and the non-profit organization A Place Called Home has been doing this since 1993.
A Place Called Home provides at-risk youth in South Central with a safe haven, a place where they can recognize their talents, abilities, and opportunities in the world. Just some of the programs and services that A Place Called Home has to offer youth in the area include:
- Music and Art Classes
- An All-Day School Program
- Mentoring and Tutoring Programs
- Computer Lab
No More Poverty (NMP.org) has partnered with A Place Called Home to provide support to their invaluable programs. With your help A Place Called Home can continue to provide services that are so crucial to the betterment of children’s lives and give kids opportunities they never thought possible before.
