VALENCIA, Calif. — Girlfriends Films Editor Marla Diamond has selected the National Alliance to End Homelessness as the GFF Charity of the Month.

The organization, which campaigns to improve policy, build capacity and educate opinion leaders, will receive a $1,000 donation from Girlfriends Films on behalf of Diamond.

“Most of the charities on the list we were given are amazingly worthwhile causes, and it is very difficult to pick just one,” Diamond said. “I have chosen the National Alliance to End Homelessness, as I am so saddened by the fact I see homeless people on the streets almost every day, sometimes mentally ill and/or in bad shape. I believe one of the most basic needs is for each person to have a home and preferably one that is as safe and as comfortable as possible.”

Diamond continued, “Although I don't know much about this charity, it had an A-plus rating on CharityWatch.org, and I am sure they will use the donation towards the goal of ending homelessness, as their name implies.”

According to its website, the National Alliance to End Homelessness is a leading voice on federal homelessness policy. From advocating for improved federal policy to analyzing enacted and proposed legislation, the Alliance actively engages in the legislative process. It also works collaboratively with public, private and nonprofit partners to develop, analyze and advocate for policy solutions to homelessness.

The Alliance provides capacity-building assistance through its Center for Capacity Building to help communities turn policy solutions and proven best practices into viable, on-the-ground programs. It provides communities across the country with best practices, how-to kits and technical assistance trainings to help them implement solutions developed through policy, research and practice.

Girlfriends Films has a long history of charitable contributions, having donated over $20,000 in 2013. Each month a performer, director, industry principal or member of the Girlfriends Films family is selected as part of the studio’s charity program, and a donation of $1,000 is given to a philanthropic organization of their choice.
