On October 22nd to 24th, People Assisting The Homeless (PATH) led 100 community volunteers in the first ever Silver Lake Registry. The registry helped survey and identify the most vulnerable individuals living on the streets of Silver Lake. Registry volunteers counted a total of 175 homeless individuals, of which 112 were surveyed. The information gathered will be used to help PATH move some of the area’s most vulnerable into housing; one man is already in the process of being housed! The organization plans to house at least 26 members of Silver Lake’s homeless population over the upcoming years.
When discussing the registry L.A. City Council President Eric Garcetti had the following to say, “This survey is an important step toward finding permanent housing solutions for our neighborhood’s homeless people. I was proud to join the PATH staff and volunteers who took time to interview those who are living on Silver Lake's streets. This experience was more than just a headcount—it was about talking with people who need help, one Angeleno to another.”
PATH will hold a community debrief this Wednesday, November 2nd, at its center located at 340 N. Madison Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90004. Joining PATH will be Council President Eric Garcetti’s office, Councilmember Tom LaBonge’s office, the Los Angeles Housing Department, the VA, Community Solutions, the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council and other community stakeholders.
The de-brief is open to the public. If you would like to attend, please RSVP by clicking here or calling (323) 644-2209.
