Venice Beach BID Community Update - July 2019

August 21, 2019



Our Clean Team workforce is making a difference in so many ways!

When we started the BID, a high priority in the community was to hire locally as much as possible. We are very pleased to report that all current Clean Team members are locally hired – and we have established a pathway for formerly unhoused Venice community members to gain transitional local employment through Chrysalis. Transitional employment is what helps people experiencing joblessness get back on track.

Before this BID started, there were very few transitional jobs available on the Westside. Because the BID Clean Team is able to hire about 15 people at any given time, and because transitional workers are encouraged to move up the employment ladder, this represents a significant number of new opportunities. Most recently, one Clean Team member was able to move into a full time driver position at Chrysalis, and two formerly unhoused team members from Venice have just moved into permanent housing!
