On this “Everyday Hero Spotlight episode, The Kandid Shop welcomes Katina Holliday, the Founder and CEO of Holliday’s Helping Hands, an organization that provides interim housing and wraparound services to people experiencing homelessness in the LA County area. Katina shares her personal experience with homelessness via her father, as well as statistics about homelessness in the United States- there are roughly 582,462 people experiencing homelessness or 18 out of every 10,000 people.
Holliday’s Helping Hands takes a “hand- up” approach, providing love and support to those in need. This organization allows families to stay together, including same-sex parents and mothers and daughters and single father’s in a “home” not a warehouse-like shelter. The organization also operates a recuperative care facility for individuals who have been discharged from hospitals but still need medical care.
One of the organization’s key programs is a 12-week life skills training program for homeless individuals. The program focuses on teaching skills such as money management, budgeting, opening a bank account, professionalism, completing job applications, writing resumes, and interviewing. The goal is to equip individuals with the necessary skills to secure and maintain employment. The program also includes hands-on training in retail services and landscaping and maintenance. The retail services program teaches customer service skills, while the landscaping and maintenance program teaches the necessary skills for those fields. The organization plans to expand the program to include a catering service, which will provide certification for those who love to cook. The program is part of the organization’s holistic approach to addressing homelessness, which includes providing counseling services, mental health services, nursing staff, and specialized meals for individuals with chronic health issues. The program is designed to help reduce homelessness and assist individuals on their journey to finding permanent housing.
Katina & Holliday’s Helping Hands are committed to helping families and individuals experiencing homelessness by providing them with the support and resources they need to achieve self-sufficiency and a better quality of life.
