Food For Homeless in NOHO

A New Book By Skip Freedman Has Just Been Released:
“Enema of the State” Reveals Exactly Who Is Behind The Globalist Created Misery
Skip Rorshach Freedman has just finished the second book in his Practical Living trilogy, directly from the road and the urban jungles in the Police State of America. EntitledEnema of the State: Practical Resistance Against a Corrupt and Criminal System, it exposes the hidden aspects of the world’s current problems: the thieving and manipulative banking system, politics in general, the menacing intelligence community, controlled mainstream press, Big Business, and the continually-expanding police state. Skip farts directly into the face of the New World Order and their mindless minions by offering up realistic ways to resist (and potentially even tear down) these offending institutions. And, as usual, he gives us more great tips on dealing with cops and other irritants. Going beyond Gypsies of the New Millennium, this book is packed with useful factoids and amazing revelations – plus it gives names and addresses of the major entities that are contributing to the destruction of our planet and its quality of life. The Windsors, Rothschilds, Rockefellers and other dinosaur Elites are blatantly exposed for the psychopathic parasites they are. In an insane world of manufactured attrocities and illusions, this is a easy read that will show you exactly how the world really works while empowering the 99% with knowledge to do something about it. You can handle the truth. This book has an extensive bibliography that lists hundreds and hundreds of books for further reading and research, as well as websites.
This book is currently ONLY available through www.Biblio.com. Go to this excellent book site and order your copy today, only $15 plus shipping.
Also Available is Skip’s First Book:
Gypsies of the New Millenium
A straightforward, no-nonsense manifesto on living the nomadic underground life. Clearly maps out the current insanity of today’s world situation while offering invaluable tips on food, health, security, money, van living, and dealing with cops. Gets you well on your way to dropping out of this oppressive system, then lists over 1,300 additional books where you can find everything else you need to help weather these uncertain and chaotic times.
This handbook covers everything you need to know to live on the edge and survive. The author, Skip Freedman has lived the nomadic life in his van for over 10 years. He knows every angle of how to survive in these urban mini-police states. And by the way, a vast preponderance of folks who live nomadic or semi-nomadic lifestyles have jobs and work when they need to. As we have said on this website, if you have an indication that you are going to lose your job and not be able to pay your rent or house payment, do not wait for the ax to fall. Do yourself a favor and prepare now. Get a van, RV, or other suitable vehicle now, and trick it out. You will be glad you did.
There are thousands of folks in the Los Angeles area who are living nomadic lifestyles. Most of us work, but we were tanked by the economic collapse that started in 2000 that wiped out the good factory jobs, literally exporting them overseas. It meant that many of us had to get lower paying jobs, and we soon found that after paying rent and bills we were underwater financially. The solution was to cut living expenses: move out of the expensive apartment, get a storage unit, join a health club for showers, and live in a vehicle. There are many articles on gypsycool.com about how to do this, with many more coming. We still work for a living, but have money to spend on what we want, not give it to some landlord for an overpriced roof over our heads.
I wish that everyone could get Skip’s book and read it. The print is small to save printing costs, but the information is the best around. As an added bonus, Skip spend several years compiling a fantastic bibliography of books on the subject that he has written about. You can get most of these at your library, even if the library has to order them for you. There is also youtube.com, which has thousands of great videos on the subject of van, nomadic, or semi-nomadic living.
This book is ONLY available through www.Biblio.com for $15.00 plus shipping.
This Fall the Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition Will Be Moving the Food Distribution to the Salvation Army ! Finally, Indoor Seating, Bathrooms, Dignity!
Great News! Sometime in late October or early November, the Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition will be moving it’s operation to the Salvation Army building in Hollywood at 5939 Hollywood Blvd., near Bronson. The Salvation Army has generously given the GWHFC the use of their kitchen and dining room. Hooray! Homeless folks and others who depend on the nightly hot meal can now have a place to sit down at a table in a clean environment and enjoy a nice meal and chat with friends, just like the rest of humanity. The GWHFC will be in charge, thanks to the great folks at the Salvation Army Hollywood.
“The Line” at Sycamore and Romaine served a purpose for years, as it was the only place to serve food. But it had its drawbacks: no seating, no tables, no bathrooms. Just a dirty sidewalk to sit on. It will be so nice to be indoors, out of the rain in the winter, in a place where you can wash up in a bathroom, and be treated like a human being. So three cheers for the Salvation Army for inviting the Food Coalition to use their facility with no strings attached! And three cheers for Sheri and the great folks at the GWHFC who work so hard every day of the week to provide food for the needy, seniors, homeless, and others! This is a well-deserved move and one that will benefit all parties concerned.
Here’s the Latest Information on Hope of the Valley
Van Nuys Help Center (6425 Tyrone Ave. Van Nuys, CA 91406). This is our main facility that daily provides homeless services to our clients. Here, we provide daily hot meals from 12:15pm-1pm Monday through Friday and most Saturdays. Additionally, we have showers available for our clients from 9-11:45 every day. We also have case managers onsite, Department of Mental Health, Veterans Affairs, etc. This is a one-stop shop for our clients seeking assistance.
Thrift Stores. We still have the thrift store in Sun Valley (but this will be closing towards the end of the year). So, we have 3 stores:
Sun Valley (8165 San Fernando Rd. Sun Valley, CA 91352).
Granada Hills (18167 Chatsworth St. Granada Hills, CA 91344).
Santa Clarita (19379 Soledad Canyon Rd. Canyon Country, CA 91351).
Hope Care Center (New Recuperative Facility). This facility, located at 11134 Sepulveda Blvd. Mission Hills, CA 91345, is where all of our Administrative offices currently are. In the downstairs portion, however, we have a recuperative care facility that acts as a shelter for homeless patients being discharged from hospitals. This facility accepts no walk-ins, clients have to be transported by a hospital and admitted by our team here. We have a full skilled nursing staff here that help bring our clients back to full health, as well as a case management team that works to find them appropriate housing. They are fed three delicious and nutritious meals a day here by our executive chef, Geronimo. The recuperative facility contains a brand new commercial catering kitchen that is capable of making 3,000 meals a day! In addition to the recuperative care portion of the building, we have a Federally Qualified Health Clinic (not up and running quite yet), but will provide health care for the surrounding community.
