On Sept. 22, Councilmember Price joined partners RMG Housing, SDS Capital Group (SDS), and Homeless Health Care Los Angeles (HHCLA) to unveil “The Etta James,” the latest permanent supportive housing development in District 9.
“Throughout our City, we are making huge strides in gaining momentum to combat the homelessness crisis through the collaboration and persistence of like-minded organizations such as RMG Housing, SDS Capital, and Homeless Health Care Los Angeles,” said Councilmember Price. “I am excited to add ‘The Etta James’ to the inventory of thousands of affordable housing units coming down the line in District 9. This new complex will serve as a place where neighbors will not only have a stable place to lay their heads but they will also be afforded a healthy and supportive environment where they can live independently and with dignity.”
The Etta James, named after the acclaimed musical prodigy, is located along the historic Central Avenue jazz corridor of Council District 9 and offers 21 permanent supportive housing units. On-site services include communal rooftop space, job assistance, rental assistance, linkages to health, mental health, substance use treatment, and ongoing case and holistic management.
