2 Hands 2 Employ Hosts 5th Annual Night of Growth Gala at The Boulevard3

Celebrate and raise awareness for a worthy cause 

According to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, about 50,000 to 60,000 people can be found homeless on any given night in Los Angeles County. Empowering at-risk individuals to excel and become self-sufficient by addressing both their immediate and long-term needs through job training, education and career placement, 2 Hands 2 Employ is making a real impact in the lives of others.

Coming to the realization that 1 in 5 children struggled with hunger, entrepreneur Chris Willard decided to lend a hand. Collecting canned goods from his local neighbors every Friday, he spent weekends sharing food and conversation with the homeless just to give encouragement. However, he eventually found this wasn’t enough – he could do more. Partnering with agencies that could help those through rehabilitation and assist in extended education, Chris created 2 Hands 2 Employ to help the at risk individuals such as homeless, veterans, foster care & juveniles eventually pre-qualify for careers in hotels and restaurants, lifting them out of scarcity. Working together to address immediate needs such as clothing, hunger and transportation, 2 Hands 2 Employ also focuses on the long-term systemic issues of employment and education.
