Event description

Description

“Possess a pure, kindly and radiant heart.”

-Bahá’u'lláh

We welcome you to join us for The Wayfarer Foundation's 5th annual Skid Row Carnival of Love (SRCOL) on Saturday, January 26th, 2019!!

Our 2019 Skid Row Carnival of Love (SRCOL) will build on the success of our 2018 Carnival and will offer more services to those experiencing homelessness who live in and around Skid Row. For one day, there is no us or them. No rich or poor. It’s simply about unconditional love and coming together as a community.

Every guest will be paired with a volunteer to guide them through the event, encouraging one-on-one connections. Healthcare, career opportunities, education, legal and housing services, as well as haircuts, feet washing, fun and games, donations, food, and great friends help us transform Skid Row into a world of sincere connection, love, and hope.

SRCOL is simply a day of love, kindness, and building community with our neighbors, while also providing our guests with needed services.
