On May 11, The Office of Councilman Curren Price and partner HOPICS, opened the “Lillian Mobley Family Housing” center. The facility was dedicated in honor of prominent African-American leader “Mother” Mobley, a legendary role model in community service and activism who left a mark across underserved communities from South LA to Watts, Sacramento and beyond.
The shelter for families is the 27th “A Bridge Home” facility in the City, and the first in District 9 devoted solely to families. With the capacity of housing 15 families, clients who live there will have a beautiful playground and grassy area for play and leisure, and will receive the care and attention they need to continue their journey toward housing stability.

On May 8, Councilmember Curren Price joined A Step to Freedom, a local District 9 non-profit, for the kick off of their annual “blessing bag” feminine care drive to bring awareness of period poverty.
Women living in poverty or experiencing homelessness often have to choose between buying food for their children and buying period products, while girls may miss school while on their periods. The bags, which contain toiletries, feminine hygiene products as well as 25,000 masks donated by Team Price, were distributed to 500 ladies experiencing homelessness in the CD 9 community throughout the past week.
“No woman should have to ever decide between purchasing food for their families and sanitary products,” added Councilman Price. “Organizations such as A Step to Freedom are doing a fantastic job bringing to light the importance of what essential supplies mean for women who are suffering from the condition of homelessness.”
