Community Celebrates Grand Opening of HOPE on Redondo!
by Ian Nevarez
LONG BEACH: We were deeply moved on June 26th by the outpouring of support that HOPE received at the grand opening of our newest homes on the 100 block of Redondo Avenue. Thank you to those in attendance, volunteers, and of course our many project partners. This day would not have been possible without you. Our guests heard from Mayor Robert Garcia, Councilwoman Suzie Price, HRC Executive Director Pat Del Monico, and many others about how important housing like this is for the community and specifically for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
This rehabilitated, six-units of housing is now home to seven low-income adults with I/DD. while one onsite unit is reserved for supportive living service staff. The project was funded with support from the City of Long Beach and the Long Beach Community Investment Company, as well as foundation grants from Bank of the West, Wells Fargo, Bess J. Hodges Foundation, Union Bank, The Ahmanson Foundation, Del Harbor Foundation, and Opus Bank. On-site services will be made available to residents through Harbor Regional Center and Ambitions CA.
