People Assisting the Homeless (PATH) Selected for Streets to Homes Program

Oddly enough, there has been no official press release about this from Councilman Rosendahl, LAHSA or PATH … but somehow Venice Action has been interviewed by the Argonaut for this? How bizarre! I’ll be asking Vince Echavaria, the author of this piece, whaddup with that.

From The Argonaut:

A nonprofit organization that works specifically with homeless people in areas across Los Angeles County has been selected as the agency to manage a proposed safe overnight parking program on the Westside.

Under the program, those who are forced to live in their vehicles on the streets will be offered designated areas in Los Angeles City Councilman Bill Rosendahl’s 11th District where they can park safely overnight and begin the transition into housing. The participants, who must follow certain regulations, will be provided with basic amenities such as restrooms, showers and trash facilities, and will have access to services including case management.

Known as “Streets to Homes,” the parking program will be administered by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA).

“The program is designed to create a pathway for people to enter and begin that trajectory back to housing,” Michael Arnold, LAHSA executive director, told Venice community members at a town hall meeting on homeless issues in September. “We know it’s a program that works.”

Following the issuance of a request for proposals (RFP) for the initiative, the LAHSA board has selected People Assisting the Homeless (PATH) to receive a contract to further develop and run the program, said Calvin Fortenberry, LAHSA spokesman. The effective date of the appointment is yet to be determined.
