On Nov. 20, Councilman Curren Price joined Mayor Eric Garcetti and partners LA Family Housing and the Coalition for Responsible Community Development to officially cut the ribbon for Residences on Main, a Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) development that will provide 25 units for chronically homeless transition-age youth and 24 for families experiencing homelessness.
The $30 million project was completed with $11 million in Measure HHH funding, and is the first such project to be completed in District 9.
“Residences on Main not only represents a new start for each tenant that gets to call it home but solidifies the hope that they have long been yearning for,” said Councilman Price. “It also marks a significant milestone for our South LA community- becoming the first HHH-funded project to be completed in District 9.
“In all, I am proud to say that my Office has helped secure nearly $90 million in HHH funds for projects in my District to help support our homeless community.“
The development, at a corner in South LA which had been condemned by the City in 2010, features on-site case management, a community room with a computer center, a playground for children, a barbecue grill area for outdoor cooking, a central courtyard, community garden and many other amenities.
The latest development joins dozens of housing complexes that will be bringing much-needed relief to working families and help reduce the homeless population in CD 9. Over the course of the next several years, District 9 is on track to build nearly 900 PSH units as well as more than 1,000 Affordable Housing units.
