LOS ANGELES — Local and federal leaders gathered at the grand opening of new permanent supportive housing for veterans in West Los Angeles earlier this month.
Building 207 is located on the West LA Veterans Affairs campus. It features 120 apartments for homeless and at-risk veterans.
LA City Council member Traci Park represents the area and joined “Inside the Issues” host Alex Cohen to talk about her plan to house more of these vets.
“There is a significant effort underway to build hundreds of new units of permanent supportive and affordable housing for our military veterans,” Park said.
Council member Park has been working to reduce the barriers that some veterans face by leading an effort within the City Council to increase income limits for benefits.
