Armando Parrish, Bishop Lynch High School senior and founder of Project Lorenzo, can now add Pegasus Prize finalist to his impressive resume. Project Lorenzo, Armando’s non-profit organization that helps people experiencing homelessness transition to permanent housing, was one of three (out of 67) finalists for The Dallas Foundation’s Pegasus Prize.
As a finalist, Project Lorenzo received a $10,000 grant to help fund his non-profit’s initiatives at an event held on Nov. 15. With the grant, Project Lorenzo plans to work with a recovery center to pilot a Google and Microsoft computer skills certification program starting in January.
"To be a finalist for the grant means that people are giving Project Lorenzo a shot at finally ending homelessness! We are beyond blessed to receive this opportunity," said Armando.
Run for Change 5K Set for Nov. 26 November is turning out to be a big month for Project Lorenzo. The organization’s second annual Run to Help End Homelessness 5K is scheduled for 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 26 at Breckinridge Park in Richardson.
