“She’s a great human being. It was really inspiring for the kids to have her here” said Pardue.

Young aspiring actor Trey and his friend, aspiring singer Nae had been on the streets of Los Angeles for a month before moving from the danger of Downtown to Venice, where they discovered the PAD.

For them the day with Page had been extra special ending with both being placed in transitional housing thanks to the PAD.
