The LA Mission thinks Kanye West must turn words into action, and the org. is frustrated for not fulfilling his vow to help homeless people find jobs and housing… people familiar with the difficulties of the Mission tell TMZ.
Kanye was very inspiring on Friday, posting this on IG… “consider the homeless as the biggest inspiration for any design.” It’s unclear what he meant, but it resurfaces some of the promises the rapper made last year, when he visited the Mission and pledged to use his businesses to help the homeless. to find employment, education and housing.
Our sources say little or nothing has been done since.

As we reported, Kanye met with the leaders of the organization. last November, where he outlined ambitious plans on how to tackle City’s biggest challenge – the homelessness crisis. We are told that people from the Mission have tried to contact Ye several times since the meeting, to no avail.
Kanye has done good for the homeless … among other things, he donated 1,000 meals and spent time encouraging volunteers and LA residents to join in and help. He also has held a Sunday service at the Union Rescue Mission on Skid Row in 2019.
We’re told LA Mission wants to work with Kanye, because he’s a huge star with a megaphone and could do a lot of good.
