Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

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.
