On Nov. 6, Councilmember Curren Price joined Stephanie Klasky-Gamer from LA Family Housing (LAFH) and Antonio Manning from the Coalition for Responsible Community Development (CRCD) for a sneak peak of Residences on Main, which is nearing completion. The four-story building is scheduled to open later this year and will provide 50 units of supportive housing for homeless individuals and their families, and for Transitional Age Youth (TAY).
The development at 6901 S. Main St. will include two large community rooms, a community garden, computer lab, courtyard and on-site case management. Tenants will have access to wrap-around services such counseling, educational support, workforce programs and more.
"There is no greater responsibility than that of caring for our neighbors in need," said Councilman Price. "The toll that is taken on someone who is looking for a place to lay their heads affects every part of their lives, whether emotional, physical or psychologically. We have to do everything in our power to bring the relief that our neighbors so desperately need."
Residences on Main joins dozens of housing projects that will be bringing much-needed relief to working families and help reduce the homeless population in CD 9. Under Councilmember Price’s leadership, CD 9 is on track to build 872 Permanent Supportive Housing units.
