Laguna Senior Apartments

EG at Laguna Senior Apartments
Originally uploaded by CD-13
Today we took another step closer toward meeting Los Angeles' great need for quality, affordable housing - we opened the doors to Laguna Senior Apartments, a complex for seniors in a mixed-income, mixed population setting. The apartments feature 64 units, a computer lab, a media center, and laundry facilities. The beautiful new complex is the result of a collaborative effort between the Affordable Housing Community Development Corporation and Project New Hope, a nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of seniors with HIV/AIDS. This project is an example of government at its best -- working in a public-private partnership to provide housing for seniors such as Howard Tubbs (seen here) who joined me at today's grand opening.
