The first temporary emergency homeless shelter in the city of Los Angeles opened its doors Wednesday near the historic El Pueblo de Los Angeles Monument.
Los Angeles’ first “A Bridge Home” temporary bridge housing site will serve 45 people, men and women who once stayed on the streets near the area. They have been preselected and spend their first night at the site on Sept. 10.
The El Pueblo project provides 45 beds, hygiene and laundry facilities, a pet area and community space and garden. Trailers have been installed on a city-owned parking lot at Arcadia and Alameda streets, near the 101 Freeway in downtown Los Angeles, and would operate for up to three years.
