LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, January 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ —
—FlyawayHomes and The People Concern, the organizations leading the most innovative and promising solution for homelessness in recent times — converting shipping containers (like the ones found at the Port of Los Angeles) into high quality, cost effective permanent supportive housing — announces the groundbreaking for their next revolutionary project at 837 W 82nd Street in Los Angeles. The People Concern and FlyawayHomes’ mission is to end homelessness in Los Angeles County by rapidly developing high quality, cost effective, shared housing combined with supportive services for the most vulnerable members of our community. The groundbreaking ceremony will take place at 10:00 AM January 25th.
FlyawayHomes and The People Concern recently completed their first supportive housing community, The Steaven K. Jones Supportive Housing Community, located at 820 West Colden Avenue in Los Angeles. The People Concern has placed 6 families and 8 single adults as tenants in this 8 four-bedroom unit development. The People Concern also provides the essential wrap-around supportive services to make sure these tenants stay housed, healthy and safe. This shipping container-based development provides proof that an innovative, high-quality, scalable and cost-effective solution to address the housing challenges of the homeless community of Los Angeles can and is being developed.
Michael Parks, FlyawayHomes’ newly appointed President and CEO, states: “I have joined FlyawayHomes and I am working with The People Concern because I firmly believe together they have a scalable model for building and operating permanent supportive housing that can significantly change the landscape of homelessness in Los Angeles County. This is the solution to homelessness because it comes at a cost our community can afford and a speed which our community needs. I believe that with adequate access to land and capital, combined with the support of the city and county agencies providing rental subsidies and funding for supportive services, we could build 450 supportive communities in the next 10 years and house 20,000 people.”
John Maceri, CEO of The People Concern, states: “We have already witnessed the great impact the first FlyawayHomes site has had for the people we serve. With each new location, we will be able to help so many more rebuild their lives.” Noyan Uras, the Chief Development Officer for FlyawayHomes, adds: “We’ve proven that this type of modular construction can be top-quality, aesthetically beautiful, functional, cost-effective and scalable. These are places people will be proud to call home.”
Steaven K. Jones, the Co-founder of FlyawayHomes and a long-standing Board Member of The People Concern, likes to say: “Permanent homes cure homelessness! Each of us needs to do our part by contributing time, energy and money to the most vulnerable in our society. We CAN end homelessness if each of us does our part. Now is the time; our community must solve this problem.”
FlyawayHomes has partnered with The People Concern, a 501(c)3 nonprofit social services agency in Los Angeles that provides a fully integrated system of care – including outreach, interim housing, mental and medical health care, substance abuse services, domestic violence services, lifeskills & wellness programs, and permanent supportive housing – to those experiencing homelessness or domestic violence, because everyone should be #housedhealthysafe.
