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.
