I was really excited to join LA Family Housing, as they broke ground on an exciting new project called, “The Campus,” in North Hollywood! LA Family Housing is one of the most effective organizations in helping our City's homeless community. They use well thought out, long-term, strategic and compassionate approaches that respect the individuals they serve. 30 years ago, LA Family Housing came to the San Fernando Valley to operate the Valley Shelter. They made a commitment to help those in need, and the new facility in North Hollywood will continue that tradition. The communities of the East San Fernando Valley support LA Family Housing because they "walk the walk" when it comes to serving our communities. I support their work because they are committed to helping individuals turn their life around, and provide pathways out of homelessness as opposed to a quick-fix approach. To help advance “The Campus,” I secured $500k in grant money to help it move forward.
You can read more about their project, and the incredible services it will provide for those seeking a path out of homelessness on their website. Or you can read more about the project and their history serving the San Fernando Valley in the LA Times.
