A groundbreaking was held today for an affordable housing complex in South Los Angeles that will include units for homeless families and chronically homeless transition-age youth.

The 50-unit Residences on Main at 6901 S. Main St. is a joint venture between LA Family Housing and the Coalition for Responsible Community Development.

“The Residences on Main demonstrates our collective commitment to help our most vulnerable Angelenos. It is a symbol of hope, opportunity and new beginnings that will not only provide a roof for formerly homeless young people and families, but it gives them a lifeline and hand up,” Los Angeles City Councilman Curren Price said. “To date, I have authorized the construction of hundreds of permanent supportive housing units such as the Residences on Main in my district because I recognize the colossal need and great sense of urgency.”

CRCD provides on-site support services to residents of its permanent supportive housing complexes, and the organization will be the lead service provider for Residences on Main.

“Residences on Main is a significant and tangible example of CRCD’s community economic development efforts where, in partnership with LA Family Housing, we will bring 50 units of much needed permanent supportive housing to the area,” CRCD President and CEO Mark Wilson said. “This development will take what was once a `problem property’ which had been condemned by the city attorney’s office and replace it with an enhancement to the community.”
