Longtime friend of the LACW, Mollie Lowery, who was dedicated to the well being of the skid row homeless, placing chronically homeless people, specifically those with severe mental illness, into housing and much needed treatment, joined the heavenly Cloud of Witnesses on Monday, July 25, after a long struggle with cancer.
Mollie was co-founder, in 1985, of L.A. Men’s Place, which later became LAMP Community, that offered housing, care, and a community environment, to the mentally challenged of the Row. She later obtained a ranch in Bishop, California, where she would take skid row homeless for some time away from the streets and provide them with whatever treatment they needed. Most recently she worked with Housing Works, in Hollywood. Mollie was dedicated to each person with whom she worked, treating everyone with dignity and respect, never giving up, no matter what, until she gained their full trust, thus enabling her to provide the critical care and love needed to rebuild their life. Without doubt, she will be missed, tremendously.
Mollie Lowrey, Presente!
