Los Angeles Sheriff's HOST Team, LAHSA, HOPICS, St Joseph's Center, WLCAC, LA County Homeless Initiative, Los Angeles County CEO's office, Compton Sheriff Station and members from Supervisor Mitchell's office worked together. Supervisor Mitchell was on-hand for the launch.
Our hard work made all this possible. We never stopped pushing forward for help.
The results from the two day clean up along Main Street and Spring & Lennon:
59 people accepted help including 3 families
28 RV's were permanently removed from circulation
Our outreach efforts provided names of those individuals ready for help. Meet Erin, she is on her way to a better future.
The healing has begun for our area. We promised Cleaner, Safer, & Healthier Streets and we have never wavered on making that our top priority.
We are not a normal Chamber of Commerce dealing with normal community issues.
We rely on the support of the business community through memberships, sponsorships and donations.
Did Anyone Attempt To Return The Areas That Were Cleaned Up?
Yes and within 96 hours they were removed. Once an area is cleaned up, there are protocols in place to prevent them from returning. Please contact us or Sgt Rojas from Compton Sheriff Station for further information. It is now our choice to report or to allow.
