The Willows
(# 865)
Images Description Credits
For those experiencing homelessness, Bridge Housing fills a critical transitional space between life on the streets and permanent housing.  In collaboration between District 3 LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl’s office and LA Family Housing (LAFH), a successful model of complimentary public/private partnership was applied to the Canoga Park Bridge Housing (shelter), ‘The Willows.’  In contrast to the majority of emergency shelters, where temporary facilities and tent structures are installed on any stretch of vacant or surplus land, The Willows project sets a new precedent of the adaptive re-use of an existing County-owned building for a permanent facility.  Set within a transitional intersection of light-industrial and residential zones, the unassuming shelter is a catalyst for positive change in people's’ lives and its urban environment.
