The homeless crisis in Los Angeles is one of the most critical issues facing our community. The United Methodist Church of San Pedro is taking a stand to fulfill its role in the community as a beacon of light and a representation of faith and love to those less fortunate.
The people of The United Methodist Church are putting our faith in action by making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.` United Methodist Church
Partnering with 1010 Development, Harbor Interfaith and The Harbor Community Clinic, this project represents a comprehensive approach to housing the homeless as well as low income individuals.
Still in the design phase, the plan is to place 49 Affordable Rental Units on the green space currently used for overflow parking. There will be 1 manager’s unit, 23 one and two bedroom units for low income families and 25 units for supportive housing.
On the Podium Level there will be recreation and outdoor space. There will also be onsite supportive services offices as well as a property manager. This means residents and the surrounding community will have alcohol and drug treatment as well as mental health, job prep and training and programs designed to elevate the standard of living for all participants.
There will be a 3,300 square foot Qualified Health Center managed by the Harbor Family Clinic that will serve the community with Primary Care, Pediatrics, Asthma, Diabetes, Psychotherapy and Behavioral Health.
The project will add 13 on-grade parking stalls and there will remain an additional 50 parking stalls at the North Parking lot on 5th & Grand Ave.
