The Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) joined PATH (People Assisting The Homeless) along with Mayor Eric Garcetti, Council Member Mitch O’Farrell, Council President Herb Wesson, and members of the community for a groundbreaking ceremony of PATH Metro Villas Phase II.
“Today, we are together to show the power of this City. There is no higher priority than bringing everyone home. We can, we must, we will end homelessness in Los Angeles and it starts right here, today,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti addressing audience in his opening remarks.
PATH Metro Villas is a two-phase comprehensive community designed “campus style” to provide 187 affordable permanent supportive housing for formerly homeless and low-income individuals and couples, veterans, low-wage earners, chronically homeless individuals as well as frequent users of the public healthcare system . PATH Metro Villas consists of 3 buildings connected to provide four PATH program areas: Housing, Veterans, Health and Employment.
