Support Veteran's housing!

The solution to homelessness for our veterans and homeless friends is housing with wrap around supportive solutions embedded into the housing program.  The project to transform the Golden Motel into housing includes case management and the supportive help that they need.  Supporting this project will help 169 individuals get off the street and into a clean supportive place to live.  Lets work to solve homelessness together, rather than leaving these individuals to wander the streets.  Tell the County Board of Supervisors that this is the solution.  Get informed and engaged.  The support and management they receive in this project will help to address the deeper issues that lead to their homelessness.  Here is some information about the  Proposed Project.   Here is a link to the group that will do the management and redevelopment of the property Mercy Housing.    Here are some new links about the project:  https://www.goldenmotelfacts.org/    Ph# (213) 863-0237 Please write a personal letter of your support to Michelle Bush at mbush@planning.lacounty.gov.  Here is an example: Dear Michelle Bush , I am writing to urge your support of the Mercy Housing Project on Rosemead Blvd.  The County of Los Angeles has recognized that the most effective way of helping our veterans and homeless individuals is through permanent supportive housing.  I believe that our community is stronger and safer when every person has a safe place to sleep and call home.  Through this project, Mercy Housing and New Direction will be providing 169 unites of supportive housing for veterans and formerly homeless individuals.  This means that those who are selected to stay in the housing will be connected directly to resources to help them stay housed.  Rather than being a blight in the area, housing communities such as this run by Mercy Housing have proven to create a positive atmosphere for life change for the residents, and a lasting positive influence in the surrounding area.

Help save mom's home!

Three generations of our family have lived in our mother’s home. She has been living there for over 50 years and her favorite part is her yard, which she has lovingly tended to ever since we can remember.  Mom is an 85-year-old, a breast cancer survivor, with Alzheimer's Disease. Her home has always been one of the most meaningful parts of her life. It is all about to be taken away. Our mother is one of many Wells Fargo predatory lending victims. Mom was living alone when Wells Fargo approached her and interviewed her for a number of loan applications. Despite being elderly and living on a fixed Social Security income, they gave her two mortgage loans. When she was about to default on one, they issued a third. How could Wells Fargo give her loans that they knew she couldn’t possibly afford? Our mother had no idea she was trapped in a predatory lending scheme, the type that Wells Fargo has been found guilty of doing time and time again. By the time we realized how much trouble mom was in, it was too late to intervene. The statute of limitations for predatory lending had run out and Wells Fargo was on her doorstep coming to collect the house. An attorney for Wells Fargo recently told our family that they, “are not in the business of running a nursing home.”  We have little time to prevent this foreclosure sale from occurring or she will be torn away from her home. This will surely leave her devastated and confused -- a fate she does not deserve. Please sign our petition and tell Wells Fargo to let our mom stay in her beloved home where she belongs.  Thank you!
