Highland Park based Recycled Resources for the Homeless has been working with the homeless neighbors of North East Los Angeles for several years. Through regular contact, aimed at learning about the needs of the individuals, they have made great strides. In addition to distributing food, clothing, and hygiene kits and documenting the long term and most at risk among them, they have reunited families and found permanent housing for some of them.
Now they are taking their next step, forming a NELA Homeless Coalition.
This from Director Rebecca Prine:
“As new interest continues to grow in neighborhoods throughout Northeast Los Angeles significant changes happen in our community; new businesses open, new parks and parklets are formed, streets are repaired, and houses remodeled as the value of real estate in NELA continues to sore. The economic revitalization within our community is noticeable, however, so are our homeless neighbors.
“The NELA Homeless Coalition will be a voice for people whose needs are overlooked as funding for residential and commercial projects gets distributed to further beautify our neighborhood.
“This coalition will need support and ideas from community leaders, stakeholders, businesses, faith-based groups, community groups, families, individuals, and of course our neighbors experiencing homelessness.
“This meeting is open to everyone and we hope you can join us as we begin to take giant steps in forming a community network in NELA dedicated to addressing chronic homelessness in our community.”
