“For me, the Weingart Center provides an invaluable service to the community and to the individual through its message of empowerment.  The Weingart Center empowers homeless individuals with education and job training.  I love that the result is a person refilled with a sense of self-worth and pride; a real check in the plus column for the individual, the workforce, and certainly for the LA community as a whole.”
