Venice Bridge Housing Update: PATH to Operate Facility, Judge Denies Attempt to Block Construction
May 31, 2019
Mike was excited to announce this month that the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority has selected People Assisting the Homeless (PATH) to manage and operate the bridge housing facility set to open in Venice this summer.
PATH - Making it Home, one of the nation’s most successful and respected homeless service providers, will be the lead operator of the site and will work with the Venice-based Safe Place for Youth (S.P.Y), which will also provide services at the temporary facility, which will provide 100 beds for adults and 54 beds for youth.
Mike is thrilled to be moving forward with such an excellent team. PATH and SPY are highly regarded service providers with a history of success, years of experience in the community, and a great track record of working with neighbors. I am confident they will make Bridge Home Venice a success.

In other news regarding the bridge housing site in Venice, this month, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge denied a request for an injunction that would have halted the planned bridge housing in Venice.
The decision allows the temporary housing facility to move forward with construction, and Mike looks forward to this project joining the other bridge housing projects throughout Los Angeles and in his district — bridge housing for homeless veterans in Brentwood (which is under construction), and bridge housing for homeless youth in Mar Vista (which opened earlier this year).
