Ad Hoc Homeless Issues Committee Meeting
August 21, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Ad Hoc Homeless Issues Committee meets on Tues. August 21 at 6:30 p.m.
The Ad Hoc Homeless Issues Committee of the Harbor Gateway North Neighborhood Council will meet on Tues. August 21 at 6:30 p.m. at the Harbor Gateway Community Center, 802 W. Gardena Blvd., Gardena, CA 90247. Parking will be available in the parking lot located on the south side of the building–enter from Menlo Avenue.
The meeting will have reports on the City’s homeless initiatives, including Safe Parking LA and A Bridge Home as well as a review of the current homeless encampments throughout the HGNNC area. The Committee will also discuss funding backpacks and toiletries for youth in the five HGNNC elementary schools via encouraging donations to a local non-profit, similar to what another Neighborhood Council has done for several years.
There will also be discussion on a proposal to help create a community kitchen in the South Bay area similar to what LA Kitchen www.lakitchen.org has done in the northeast area of Los Angeles. This is a non-profit which gathers unwanted local produce to create meals which are then donated to agencies serving the homeless and low income people. The program also trains the homeless, the formerly incarcerated, and those formerly in foster care for jobs in the culinary field.
Stakeholders are welcome to attend.
