Skid Row Family Center Almost Out Of Funds, Needs Help

As ABC7 in Los Angeles reports, the Hope Gardens Family Center is nearly out of funds. The center works to help women and their children move out of L.A.'s Skid Row.

Dozens of families have been helped by Hope Gardens Family Center, and the group needs over $2 million to stay open.

"Drug sales, people just doing drugs right there on the street in front of the children," said Brandi Eden, a resident of Hope Gardens.

Eden and her daughter lived on Skid Row for four months. But for the past nine months, they've been living at Hope Gardens Family Center.

"It's given me hope," said Eden. "I know that I can make it and I can move on, and I have all the support here."
