With President Carter

No, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter isn't actually building or repairing all 100 homes by himself... but his namesake program, the Jimmy Carter Work Project, is doing so before the end of the year. I've said many times that building more quality affordable housing is crucial to our city's future. Our city is fortunate that South L.A. and San Pedro were chosen for the 2007 Jimmy Carter Work Project to raise awareness about the area’s need for affordable housing.
