As of March 2018, Councilman Curren Price had committed to building 295 new units of permanent supportive housing in the 9th District. Half of those units are scheduled to be completed by 2020.
Earlier this week, Councilman Price was joined by dozens of community members in front of Casa de Rosas—a dilapidated, century-old home on the federal registry of historic places that is currently undergoing repairs to provide future housing for homeless veterans.
"This is only a snapshot of what we’re doing in the 9th District to lift families, veterans and foster youth living on our streets,” Councilman Price said. “I applaud my Council Colleagues who pledged to support a minimum 222 units of homeless housing in their respective Districts to ensure they are built in communities across Los Angeles. We all bear the responsibility to help restore the lives and dignity of our homeless brothers and sisters."
