SOUTH LOS ANGELES (KABC) – Civil rights activist Dolores Huerta, Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass and dignitaries on Thursday celebrated the grand opening of a permanent supportive housing project in Vermont Square.
Officials said this project is the first of its kind because it was made possible mostly through a private-sector fund. The apartment project was named after Dolores Huerta herself. Huerta said this is the solution to help with the fight against homelessness.
“I am so honored to be here today and to have this apartment building here named in my name… Here is the solution, right here,” said Huerta. “We are seeing it. This can happen. It can only happen when everyone comes together to make it happen.”
