A Million Drops Outreach Bus

Providing necessities and advice.

For the past three years, AMD founder Maike Both and her team have cruised the streets of Hollywood in their own cars and on foot whenever they could make time, looking for young homeless in need, to provide direct assistance, like distributing toiletries, socks, sleeping bags and other needed items.

The goal now is to purchase a small bus, truck or cargo van, and provide these services at specific locations and regular times.

A Million Drops Outreach Center

A space of support, providing a hand up, not a handout.

The center will be a space for A Million Drops to provide emotional and educational support, and the tools needed to start building a life that leads off of the streets. Our programs will include crash courses on How To Write A Great Resume; How To Conduct A Successful Job Interview; How To Cook A Healthy Meal On A Camping Stove With Groceries Bought At The 99 Cents Store. We will assist with replacing a lost or stolen ID, and help with interview preparations. The Center will also be a safe haven for Reading, Writing and Creating Art, and we hope to provide Yoga and Healing workshops.

A Million Drops Thrift Shop

Providing job opportunities.


Our long term vision is to open the A Million Drops Thrift Shop, a second hand store that will generate income and enable us to provide job opportunities to homeless, at-risk youth. It will also be a free source for homeless men and women who are moving into unfurnished housing and need the basics to get started.

You can check out our activities on the Current Programs page, and if you would like to support our vision, please consider making a donation.
