Protect Affordable Housing in the City of Los Angeles, STOP the Community Care Facilities Ordinance!

    1. United Way  Greater Los Angeles
    2. Petition by

      United Way Greater Los Angeles

If passed, the Community Care Facilities Ordinance will eliminate shared housing for thousands of low income households and will negatively impact our seniors’ ability to live independently. By eliminating shared housing, the ordinance will impact housing affordability in Los Angeles and put thousands of people at risk of homelessness.

The Community Care Facilities Ordinance is in violation of Fair Housing and Disability Rights Laws. The ordinance will also conflict with federal housing subsidy requirements and puts Los Angeles at risk of losing millions in federal funds to help alleviate poverty and homelessness in our region.

The revised version of the Community Care Facilities Ordinance released in early January does not resolve these issues.  The Community Care Facilities Ordinance must be defeated to protect human and civil rights for all in Los Angeles.  

Follow Home For Good on Facebook and Twitter for updates on this Ordinance.

      We need to end the homeless problem in LA. It is unacceptable as a city with so many people. If everyone in the city starting paying a small tax every year we'd be able to house everyone. Lets show the world we CARE!!

      Because I do not think the ordinance will benefit the community as a whole. Properly managed group care facilities are an asset to the community. I worked in Group homes with autistic adults for 4 years. It is the only environment where they can progress to independent living. No group home with the purpose of rehabilitation or assisted care should be denied the right to operate within reasonable driving distance of the customers they serve who are usually local.
