PATH is excited to share that since the fall of 2018, we will now operate three new interim housing sites in Los Angeles, continuing our mission to end homelessness for individuals, families, and communities.
The first is the Hollywood Studio Club, a new partnership with the YWCA. At this historic site, 64 formerly homeless women will be housed on an interim basis while receiving supportive services from PATH case managers and program staff. In addition to ongoing case management, the site offers a large outdoor courtyard, semi-private rooms for the guests, and a large kitchen and cafeteria for meals.
The second is A Bridge Home Hollywood, which is located in the heart of Hollywood on Schrader Boulevard. The interim housing site is a part of Mayor Garcetti’s A Bridge Home, a new plan to give those experiencing homelessness shelter from the streets while more permanent units are being built. The site opened in March of 2019, and will be operated by PATH with additional resources being provided by The Center at Blessed Sacrament.
A Bridge Home Hollywood will temporarily house 72 people who experienced homelessness in Hollywood, while providing supportive services to help clients connect to permanent homes and other needs. This site includes case management offices, an outdoor patio, a common space, and small dog park.
The third interim housing site, Casa Azul, is located near Mac Arthur Park. In partnership with Councilmember Gil Cedillo, PATH will operate and provide housing and case management services. Casa Azul will temporarily house 28 women and 5 families from Council District 1.
Casa Azul is unique, as it honors the Mexican heritage and influence of the surrounding neighborhood. With authentic Mexican furniture, art pieces, and bright colors, this space creates a warm and inviting environment for residents. The expected opening of this site is May of 2019.
With the Hollywood Studio Club, A Bridge Home Hollywood and Casa Azul, PATH now provides over 500 interim housing beds across the state of California for those experiencing homelessness.
