In South Los Angeles there are at least 50,000 to 60,000 homeless individuals that are homeless and more than 44,000 are living on the streets.  Founders Judy and ​Eric Harris started Footprints Around the World, Inc, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization in 2014 and has dedicated themselves to  help the homeless and low income families in Los Angeles  community.  Footprints has provided over 2800 hot meals,  bundles of clothing, thousands of toys, and hundreds of gift boxes.


 We believe that no one should go hungry or be left behind.  Our Assistant Director Geynna Buffington,  helps us with the homeless community, she is our liason between homeless shelters and Footprints.

We believe that homelessness can happen to anyone and that people should reach out to those who are in need and dedicate time, donations, food and supplies to those who have lost their homes or jobs. Our goal is to see that no man, woman or child has to live homeless on the streets due to devastating circumstances, and that each individual is able to receive the personal attention necessary to overcome their homelessness.

Helping the Children in Haiti

 The homeless populations has grown in the past years, and now the need for food for the homeless is at an all time high.  There are people of all races, color and walks of life that are in need of our help.  Footprints along with volunteers have stepped out into the streets to help feed the hungry in our city.  It is a necessity for us to continue to help to make sure that people have food to eat.  That is why we hand-out hot meals in South L.A., Downtown L.A. and Culver City and many Freeway overpasses. 

Footprints "Food for the Soul" provides meals, toiletries, face mask, backpacks/survival kits, blankets, clothes, shoes and water to drink.  Just to witness the hunger in their faces and in their bodies is priceless.  We understand the it could be us in that same situation,  your life can change in the blink of an eye.  That is why we have compassion for others and do all that we can to help our fellow man.  The people truly appreciate the food and the love.  I hope that you can find it in your hearts to help someone today, their lives may depend on it.
