On April 11, Councilman Curren Price celebrated alongside the Coalition for Responsible Community Development (CRCD) and LA Family Housing (LAFH) the groundbreaking of Residences on Main, a development which will provide 50 units of affordable supportive housing for chronically homeless Transition Age Youth and families experiencing homelessness.
“The Residences on Main demonstrates our collective commitment to help our most vulnerable Angelenos,” Councilman Price said. “It is a symbol of hope, opportunity and new beginnings that will not only provide a roof for formerly homeless young people and families, but it gives them a lifeline and a hand up.”
Centrally located near commercial shops and multiple transit options, Residences on Main is designed to stabilize and integrate families into the surrounding community. Communal areas, including community rooms, a toddler play space, and computer lab, will offer opportunities to connect with neighbors and family members. The design also includes a central courtyard and community garden to provide green space for rest and play.
CRCD will provide on-site case management to promote economic self-sufficiency, among other supportive services. “This development will take what was once a ‘problem property,’ condemned by the City Attorney’s Office, and replace it with an enhancement to the community,” added CRCD President and CEO Mark Wilson.
To date, Councilman Price has authorized the construction of hundreds of permanent supportive housing units such as the Residences on Main in his District because he recognizes the colossal need and great sense of urgency.
