When Pastor Lisa Williams first came to San Pedro Methodist Church, she saw a need that wasn't being met.
Hundreds of her neighbors were living outside, and someone had to step up to help bring them the support they needed.

“I realized that once you learn somebody’s name, they no longer become a statistic,” she says. “You are compelled to help them. That’s why I’m doing this, and will keep doing this.”
