Built in 1893, the historic 29,900 square foot Casa de Rosas complex is currently being rehabilitated to serve as housing for 36 veteran families. On Monday, Councilman Curren Price, along with other State, County and City officials, broke ground on the campus under construction, which will provide support to formerly homeless single-parent veterans.
"I’m elated that Casa de Rosas will bloom once again next spring, creating a space for hope, healing and opportunity," said Councilman Price said. "I look forward to being back here in 2020 for the ribbon cutting and welcoming all the families that will be part of the fabric of our South LA community."
The multi-million dollar project is being led by Ward Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), in partnership with Integral Group. Once completed, it will include courtyards, fruit tree lined sidewalks, along with onsite daycare.
The latest construction project along Hoover and Adams represents more than 600 units of Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) with wraparound services for people experiencing homelessness slated for District 9.
