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.
