Bonin’s Newsletter Shows Beginning of Temporary Shelters


This photo and information are from Mikes Bonin’s weekly Neighborhood Newsletter that is well worth getting. This story is reprinted here because of temporary shelter and the comment that the City is now looking for temporary shelter for the unhoused until permanent housing can be arranged.

Well, wouldn’t it be nice if City could and would find a large enough area to shelter them all in one place, in order to provide necessity services, to provide supportive services, to help with employment, to keep them safe and off the streets.

The magnitude of the homeless crisis on LA’s streets demands creative solutions, and Mike is working with his colleagues to explore new ways to offer support and shelter for those forced to live on the street. 

Last month, Mike joined his colleague Councilmember Jose Huizar and Mayor Eric Garcetti as they proposed a temporary shelter for homeless residents living in encampments. For years, Mike has fought for immediate shelter, which provides needed relief and protection for people living on the street during their long wait for permanent housing. The temporary shelter called for by Councilmember Huizar and Mayor Garcetti will offer homeless residents opportunities to find relief and supportive resources, such as bathrooms, showers, and management services.
