On Sept.24, we celebrated the expansion of opportunities in South Los Angeles. It was a big day for supporting second chances and we're now one step closer to closing the unemployment gap in District 9.
My staff and I were on-hand for the grand opening of the new headquarters of CRCD Enterprises. The latest expansion allows CRCD to increase offerings in general construction, facilities maintenance and urban infrastructure. The facility, along Central Avenue, is the first of its kind in the area and will provide job-creation and expansion of their programs to at-risk youth and the formerly incarcerated at the new center.
For years, my Office has collaborated with CRCD Enterprises to keep our streets clean, fix our sidewalks, remove bulky items, and generally beautify our community. I am proud to see this flourishing partnership helping to address the growing need for jobs in our area, and changing the lives of countless individuals and their families.
