Words That Inspire Us
When we speak we are afraid our words will not be heard or welcomed. But when we are silent, we are still afraid. So it is better to speak.

Located in South Los Angeles just south of the intersection of two major commercial corridors, 88th and Vermont will serve a mixed population of very very low-income households (earning less than 30% of Area Median Income) along with transitional-aged homeless youth and homeless households including veterans with special needs. The property will create 62 new apartment units in two newly constructed buildings divided by an alley in between as well as a 9,000 square foot two-story Youth Source and Family Center in one of the buildings along with a half-court basketball court with controlled community entry. In addition, the residential portions of the property will feature common courtyards, community spaces, laundry rooms, offices, a covered ‘patio’ area for small children, and a computer room. Outdoor areas will feature edible landscaping, communal gardens and fruit trees, enhanced by nutrition education and lifeskills classes for residents. The Youth Source and Family Center will be operated by Community Build.
