As the County of Los Angeles seeks ways to ease the current housing crisis and slow the spread of COVID-19, the L A County Dept. of Military and Veterans Affairs, the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, and Volunteers of America have launched the Safe Parking Program at Bob Hope Patriotic Hall, effective immediately.
The parking lot next to Bob Hope Patriotic Hall (1815 S. Flower) will now be available as a safe space for homeless veterans and civilians living in cars and small trucks to receive services.
Priority will be given to homeless veterans, however any person experiencing homelessness with a vehicle (no vans, trailers or mobile homes) may apply.
