For 4,930 seniors in Los Angeles who are chronically homeless, permanent supportive housing provides the intensive services and stability necessary for staying off the streets. The primary goal of ALA’s social service program is to improve seniors’ physical and mental health so they can maximize their independence. Affordable housing combined with case management gives homeless seniors a platform from which to access other essential services.
A team of ALA social workers provide onsite services to approximately 125 formerly homeless tenants at Bonnie Brae Village, Parkview on the Park, the Janet L. Witkin Center, and Rampart Apartments (coming in 2017).
