In Loving Memory
Our founder, Carolina Winston Barrie, was the strongest and fiercest advocate for U.S. veterans and soldiers; yet the kindest, bravest soul, mentor and mother.
Our non-profit organization, 1887 Fund, will continue her fight and execute her vision to return the West Los Angeles land to the Veteran’s Home it once was.
1887 Fund’s mission is to ensure Los Angeles Veterans will, once again, have a place to call home. 1887 Fund believes that the restoration of the Wadsworth Chapel will act as a sign of hope and much needed change. It is time to renew this home for our country’s soldiers and take a major first step toward completing the larger master plan for this land.
