Grand Re-Opening of Sheldon Skate Park

Apr 10, 2017

The Sheldon Skate Park in Sun Valley is well loved by many skaters from throughout the region.  It is a great place for kids to get together and enjoy the outdoors and participate in their favorite sport.  However, late last year, residents nearby, many park users, and others had grown weary with how the park was being treated by some users.  Many complained about graffiti, vandalism, and blatant disregard for the park facilities.  There were thousands of dollars of damage that were being reported almost daily.

HOPE Team Keeps Inspiring

Apr 10, 2017

Our HOPE Teams are working every single day to help our homeless residents in the Valley, and every time I hear one of their success stories I want to share it with you.  I often hear from people complaining about the homeless issue – from the encampments to the lack of housing.  It’s a huge problem in our city and region, but by having our HOPE Teams building relationships with the homeless communities and identifying their specific needs, we are seeing concrete results. Recently, Sgt. Padilla with the LAPD Operations-Valley Bureau HOPE Team wrote me, “With some much appreciated help from Michael's Furniture Store, Gobethe 1, LAHSA and HOPE of the Valley the OVB HOPE Team and LAHSA were able to obtain and deliver food, clothing, gift cards, new beds, welcome home kits and misc household items to a newly housed Veteran Patrick and a mother/daughter Rachel and Rebecca. We still have some work to do but this was a great start.” I agree, there’s a lot more work to do, but this is certainly a good start.  I hope nothing but the best for Patrick, Rachel and Rebecca with their new start!
