Article: Shipping containers used to build LA housing complex for the homeless
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
about this project Hilda Solis First Care Village, LA, I and an interesting group are presently discussing on Twitter, please see thread at:
Particularly I'd like to invite views of anyone currently or formerly or near houseless, or who has lived in housing alternatives such as 'microunits' or trailers. We have activist @homeless_new (NYC) on and I've copied a number of other houseless folk I know of.
I'm in Bay Area currently and likely to go to LA this month, Solis Care Village is one place I'd particularly like to visit, among the many field-research places of great interest in area.
