Twenty-three previously homeless individuals, who with the support of local nonprofit agencies, have made extraordinary transitions from homelessness to lives filled with passion and promise, were honored at the 16th Annual Celebrating Success Breakfast last Friday, Oct.28.

The event was held at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows in Santa Monica.

The Success Breakfast also honored 13 local businesses, organizations, and individuals who have dedicated significant resources to supporting the member agencies of the Westside Shelter & Hunger Coalition (WSHC), and Whole Foods Market, which received the 2011 WSHC Partnership Award.
