HausAngeles is passionate about giving back to our community and we have a special focus on youth, education, and the arts. 3 years ago, we were privileged to co-found the Lifeworks Youth Scholarship program along with our friends David Bailey and his partner Ron Shalowitz. The LifeWorks scholarships are awarded to students who might otherwise be unable to afford tuition, books and other expenses. Recipients are chosen based on financial need, community involvement and other factors that have affected their ability to reach their full potential.
In 2012, LifeWorks awarded $42,000 in scholarships to 24 lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) youth. We attended the awards ceremony and were so inspired! $40,000 of the $42,000 in 2012 scholarships awarded were funded through donations by HausAngeles (Rayman Mathoda + Avantika Shahi) and David Bailey along with his partner Ron Shalowitz and are supporting youth in attending colleges ranging from LACC to UCLA to NYU!
Organizations HausAngeles proudly supports include Outfest, Kids Progress Inc., and the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center.
