One Human Community
Sep 282013

No matter how bad your situation or how modest your home, the place you live in and call home is the center of your world. For those of you who reside in rented apartments; who are unable to pay rent and may be facing eviction, there is hope!

Provided you earn some income – that’s a condition! – you might be eligible for help!

People Assisting The Homeless (PATH), a non-profit organization, assists people facing an eviction. You might qualify for rental assistance and maybe even a grant from the Rapid Re-housing Assistance Program. They might help you stay in your apartment or get you a new one! You may be eligible to get help with your delinquent utility bills, too. Visit PATH’s Website or call (323) 644-2200.


I’m Avo Keshishyan, the guy who survived the shift into the “new economy” and in the process discovered – and attempted to meet to the best of his ability! - the needs of his neighborhood. That’s how One Human Community came about. My personal “state of emergency” is over, but the community still needs help.
