A site has been chosen for another one of Mayor Garcetti’s bridge housing facilities, part of his push to get new temporary housing built for the homeless in each of Los Angeles’ 15 council districts.
This project is specifically for homeless veterans, and it’ll be on the West L.A. Department of Veterans Affairs campus in Brentwood.
The facility is slated for an early 2019 opening with a planned 100 temporary beds, along with bathrooms, laundry and “hygiene centers” inside large, industrial tents and trailers. There will be two structures with 50 beds each — one for female veterans and another for men.
They’re modeled after the Veterans Village temporary bridge shelter in San Diego. The city council there just approved more funding to keep its tent facilities open.
