LA GIVES BACK began in 2016 as a response to the growing homelessness crisis in Los Angeles. What started as a one night event has since evolved into a movement led by some of the entertainment industry’s most influential curators and personalities. Every year, LAGB mobilizes the LA creative community to raise crucial funds for local organizations who combat homelessness year round.
The Downtown Women’s Center (DWC) is the only organization in Los Angeles focused exclusively on serving and empowering women experiencing homelessness and formerly homeless women. DWC envisions a Los Angeles with every woman housed and on a path to personal stability. Its mission is to end homelessness for women in greater Los Angeles through housing, wellness, and advocacy. Founded in 1978, DWC was the first permanent supportive housing provider for women in the U.S.
My Friend’s Place assists and inspires homeless youth to build self-sufficient lives through a broad continuum of care including meals, employment and education assistance, case management and more. Founded in 1988, My Friend’s Place serves nearly half of homeless youth in Los Angeles.

IHEARTCOMIX’ Franki Chan says: “LA GIVES BACK is exactly that, our community giving back. After the success of the last three years, we’ve decided to make this an annual institution and expand the giving. It’s so cool that so many of LA’s top music curators and creative talent can come together and produce a series of events that draws attention to a huge crisis in our community.
For IHEARTCOMIX, this is our holiday party. I feel strongly that Los Angeles is the best city in the world for music and creative energy. Over the fifteen years that IHC has been here we’ve seen this town change so much for the better. It’s not just the talent that is amazing, but the sense of community that makes it special and has drawn so many people here. However, the unplanned consequence of that growth has been the rise of the homeless population in LA. It’s our responsibility to address this problem and fix it. As we grow, we must bring everyone up with us. Hopefully this event shows our city and the world that we can stand as one to create positive change.”
“LA Gives Back has become a welcome holiday tradition for B&L. It’s a way for world renowned artists and diehard fans alike to come together in unison and give to a very worthy cause that affects anyone living in Los Angeles.” – Brownies & Lemonade “As LA natives, it’s always in our hearts to create ways for our community to thrive creatively and culturally. That’s why teaming up with our peers to aid LA residents through our passion for music is an especially rewarding feeling for us. Last year’s event was a dream for us to be a part of and this year we hope to go beyond and help even more people in need!” – Late Night Laggers
“Restless Nites is a tightly–curated list of crucial events based in Los Angeles & New York, and launching soon in San Francisco, Portland, and beyond. We aim to expose the best that nightlife has to offer, to a wider audience of music heads, art lovers, film buffs, and fashion freaks.” – Restless Nites
“We love throwing parties, but if you have a platform and don’t use It to bring awareness of issues in your own community then you’re being irresponsible. The LA scene means EVERYTHING to us. And the fact that all of these amazing LA parties that make up the fabric of our scene can all come together, not only to raise awareness but to raise actual money to and create REAL change is incredibly moving. We’re so proud to be a part of this. Last year exceeded our expectations 10 fold and we can’t wait to see what this year’s LA Gives Back has in store. We love our community, and this event is a beautiful representation in what “community” actually means.” – Ham on Everything

On Wed Dec 11th in Los Angeles, IHEARTCOMIX partnered with FREE THE WORK and Woman Collective to present the LA Gives Back Preview Event & Fundraiser for the homeless. This special event took place at the newly opened Soho Warehouse in downtown Los Angeles. Set in an area affected the hardest by the homeless epidemic, the LA creative community came together for an evening of music, comedy and speakers from the charites.
Hosted by Zackary Drucker (Transparent), the entertainment included a performance from Moses Sumney, DJ sets from Nosaj Thing, Machinedrum, Devendra Banhart, Ana Calderon, Chris Holmes and Marc Baker, comedy from Sarah Squirm, Nina Tarr, Brandon Wardell and Jak Knight as well as speakers Holly Hight from Downtown Women’s Center and Susan Dutra from My Friend’s Place.
Donations stations, auction sales and a charitable contribution from Soho Warehouse all went towards the full LA Gives Back pot with 100% raised going to charity.
