Turkey and all the trimmings are served with generous portions of love and hospitality by Long Beach, California, residents Alex Wexler and Gregg Milano, whose Thanksgiving feast for foster children brings new meaning to the notion of dining “family style.”

Foster Youth Success​

Meet Michael, a former foster youth who overcame his struggles and is now advocating for the support of other homeless and foster youth. Michael, like many others, ended up in the foster system with no direction or support. He is now sharing his story in hopes that it will inspire others to get involved with helping foster youth and bring support to our non-profit organization, Hamlet for the Homeless.​ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XNGDeqHZOM

Jared Milrad - a change we need

Jared Milrad is Long Beach’s own progressive activist and socially conscious filmmaker. He’s worked with presidential candidate Barack Obama and believes in positive change. Jared comes in a time when we need change the most. He funded a non-profit to provide legal services for low income residents and supports the homeless community. Openly gay, with huge support for the LGBTQ Community, he’s the perfect candidate to support for city council district 7. Our founder has conversed extensively with Jared about his vision and he can certainly say that Jared supports helping the homeless. We all want to make a positive impact and change the city of Long Beach. We anticipate partnering with Jared to share our vision and help bring hope and support to the homeless runaway youth. ​


“The script is sweet and clever with sideways dialogue and inventive lyrics, memorable, loveable and wacky characters, and a melodic score that is equally clever, great fun and also memorable.
