A historic 1940’s building at the West Los Angeles VA Medical Center has become permanent supportive housing for senior veterans who have experienced homelessness.
“Fifty-nine veterans and their families will now have the good, safe, stable homes that they deserve, and there’s nothing more important than that,” said Tanya Bradsher, VA Chief of Staff. “We are excited about this critical step forward, but there is still much work to be done. No veteran should experience homelessness – in Los Angeles or anywhere else in America – and we won’t rest until every veteran has a home in this country they fought to defend.”
The three-story location provides 59 formerly homeless senior veterans and their families with fully furnished studio and one-bedroom apartments, as well as a variety of amenities such as a fitness room, television lounge, computer lab, laundry facilities, and on-site access to case workers.
With the addition of these new apartments, the VA’s West LA campus now features 113 permanent housing units for homeless and at-risk veterans.
