July 1, 2021 /3BL Media/ - The Home Depot Foundation announced today its commitment of $325,000 toward the construction of a new permanent housing facility in Los Angeles for seniors and veterans experiencing homelessness, in partnership with the Weingart Center Association.
The 11010 Santa Monica Boulevard permanent supportive housing facility will include 51 units restricted to seniors experiencing homelessness, with 28 units reserved for veterans. In addition to housing, the building will include on-site facilities for intensive case management, substance use services, mental health care and physical health care, as well as counseling and advocacy provided by the VA of Greater Los Angeles.
The facility is projected to open to its first residents in October 2022.
“Seniors and veterans face tremendous hurdles when experiencing homelessness,” said Senator Kevin Murray, president and CEO of the Weingart Center Association. “We are thankful The Home Depot Foundation recognizes the importance of providing comfort and support to this unique demographic.”
To date, the Foundation has invested more than $375 million in veteran causes, including making critical home repairs for combat wounded veterans, providing financial assistance and helping senior veterans age independently in their own homes.
