Work Begins On New Los Feliz Homeless Shelter
The city has broken ground on the new facility — the latest in Mayor Garcetti’s A Bridge Home initiative. The shelter being built at the southeastern edge of Griffith Park will provide beds for 100 men and women experiencing homelessness.
The goal of “bridge housing” is to give people a safe, short-term place to stay while outreach workers connect them with health services, counseling and long-term housing. When a person secures that housing solution, their bed opens up for someone else in need.
Thrilled to be breaking ground on the Los Feliz Bridge Home today! This project will bring those currently living on the street or the banks of the Los Angeles River into housing and real, life-changing care. pic.twitter.com/rsHrN9A5mM— David E. Ryu (@davideryu) February 26, 2020
