The homelessness crisis has gripped Los Angeles and affects all of us. BOMA/GLA recognizes that combating this issue is a priority for our members. We also understand that knowing how to help or what to do is difficult to grasp when a social crisis is of this magnitude.
For almost 60 years, The People Concern has been serving the most vulnerable people experiencing chronic homelessness in Los Angeles; those with mental health, physical health, and/or substance use conditions. They operate interim housing sites in Santa Monica, Downtown LA, and very soon, Lancaster; a recuperative care facility; wellness and access centers; and domestic violence shelters in addition to thousands of units of Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) throughout Los Angeles County. Their innovative programs have become “best practices” adopted across the region; 92% of people placed in PSH by The People Concern never experience homelessness again. In partnership with The People Concern, BOMA/GLA will be launching our “Hands Together” initiative.
For the remainder of 2020, we will be participating in activities and engagement events that we encourage you, your team, and your tenants to get involved in. From tours in local housing facilities to serving or packing lunches, to upcoming drives that our entire organization will be getting behind...
