Councilmember Huizar joined Mayor Garcetti and the Skid Row Housing Trust for the ribbon cutting on the New Pershing Apartments.
As the Skid Row and DTLA representative and Co-chair of the newly formed Homelessness & Poverty committee, Councilmember Huizar is working on crafting policy, such as Operation Healthy Streets, to address homelessness and bring a spotlight to this extremely important issue. New Pershing Apartments is a step in the right direction - a historic rehab and welcomed addition to the Pershing Hotel. The New Pershing Apartments provide 69 studio and one-bedroom units and additional common areas to residents, in place of the old 69 SRO units. Every person deserves a good home, thanks to Skid Row Housing Trust for helping make that possible!
