On Wednesday, November 13, 2019, The Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) joined with Mayor Eric Garcetti, Councilman Joe Buscaino and community partners for the opening of A Bridge Home Imperial. This shelter will provide interim housing and supportive services for 100 women and men from the neighborhood who were previously homeless before connecting with the facility - giving them a place to receive the support they need to get on the path toward permanent housing.

Located on Imperial Highway, this A Bridge Home location is special to HACLA in that it is directly across the street from our Imperial Courts site. This location will also be unique in that it will have its own dedicated Work Source Center, operated by HACLA. The Salvation Army will lead the efforts in providing mental health, substance abuse, housing, and job readiness services.

In December 2018, the HACLA Board of Commissioners authorized the necessary lease agreement with the City to begin development of the Bridge Home site and we’re proud to announce its opening one year later. “For the longest time, this entire corridor of the Imperial Highway has been home to many members of the homeless community… This is an ideal location to serve those in South Los Angeles and to serve those in the Watts Community,” said HACLA President & CEO Doug Guthrie.
