Emceed by Kenny Hamilton (Imagine LA Ambassador) and attended by mentors, families and friends of Imagine LA celebrated our families that graduated from our program in 2015 and heard 12 amazing journeys.
Children are doing well in school and moving on to secondary education, parents are developing careers and increasing their income and most importantly families are no longer homeless. It was amazing to hear about all of the families and their successful journeys back-to-back. We also were able to hear Maria, from one of our very first families nearly 8 years ago, still an active alumna of our program, and flourishing!
Each graduating family received a beautiful commendation from the City of Los Angeles, Councilmember David Ryu, recognizing each family's amazing hard work and success. Adidas Shoes also gave each family a kick start to their new life by donating a pair of new shoes for each family member
We would like to extend a very special thanks to our host Kenny Hamilton, Starbucks, Temple Emanuel and our Imagine Tomorrow Alumni Association, who helped make this event a success.
If you missed it, please make sure to join us at next year's Annual BIG! Commencement.
