Last week the MAP team spent a day volunteering at the Hope of the Valley Help Center in Van Nuys.
Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission provides support to the homeless in the San Fernando Valley by aiming to break the cycle of poverty. Some of the services provided include: hot showers; clothing and personal care items; a hot lunch which is served daily.
Mary Akpovi, one of the founding partners of MAP, is a former board member of Hope of the Valley.
