LOS ANGELES – Earlier today Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Councilmember Bob Blumenfield and PATH (People Assisting the Homeless) gathered at the permanent supportive housing community, PATH Winnetka Village Apartments as part of the PATH Adopt a Site program. Mayor Garcetti, Councilmember Blumenfield and volunteers brought holiday cheer to local seniors by helping to decorate for the holidays.
“Every Angeleno deserves a place to come home to,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “Winnetka Village is the gold standard of permanent supportive housing — a beautiful community where people can start fresh, feel safe, and get the help they need to rebuild their lives.”
“It is inspiring to celebrate the holidays with everyone at the Winnetka Village and enjoy the hospitality of seniors who were formerly homeless. This wonderful place is a shining example of what we need to build throughout the city,” said Councilmember Bob Blumenfield. “Thanks to the leadership of Mayor Garcetti, PATH, LAFH and companies like Meta Housing Corporation, we will move forward together and create more housing just like this, investing in the secure future of all Angelenos.”
Winnetka Village provides 95 units of permanent supportive housing dedicated to senior adults ages 62 and older. Winnetka Village is more than just a key to a safe place to sleep, rather it offers a space for residents to live independently and the supportive services they need to regain stability.
“We want to thank Mayor Garcetti and Councilmember Blumenfield for brining holiday cheer to the residents of PATH Winnetka Village Apartments,” said Amy Anderson, Executive Director, PATH Ventures. “It takes a community to develop a supportive housing complex like Winnetka and we look forward to further collaborations as there is still so much more work to be done throughout Los Angeles.
