With construction just underway on the first Bridge Home site in CD 9, it will soon be home to 100 of the most vulnerable people in our South LA community.
“A Bridge Home” provides emergency temporary housing facilities to serve the homeless population that are within a 1.5 mile radius of the site. In addition, Los Angeles Sanitation & Environment will devote extra resources to maintain cleaner streets in the area.
The facility will have a dedicated team offering wrap-around services including medical care, job training, housing placement, public benefit access, along with mental health and addiction support. The provider team on-site will consist of a nurse, a mental healthcare worker, social worker, and 24-hour security guard on site.
With a warm bed, three meals a day, storage for personal belongings, a pet kennel, clean restrooms and high cubicle wall for privacy, this marks the beginning of a new journey for our unsheltered neighbors.
The Office of Councilmember Curren Price is eager to bring hope to Hope Street with this facility, slated for completion by early February 2020.
