Two years after opening its flagship Anita May Rosenstein Campus, the Los Angeles LGBT Center celebrates the grand opening of its newest building: the Michaeljohn Horne & Thomas Eugene Jones Youth Housing. Located directly across the street from the revolutionary Campus and next door to the Center’s Village at Ed Gould Plaza, the nearly 13,000-square-foot, four-story structure includes 25 supportive housing apartments for youth ages 24 and under; a community space with desktop computers, a television, and seating; a case management office; a well-designed outdoor space with landscaped areas and pathways; laundry facilities; and more. Screened by the Los Angeles Coordinated Entry System, residents are among the most vulnerable youth in Los Angeles who experience the most extreme barriers to qualify for housing support.
To commemorate the momentous occasion, the Center will produce a virtual celebration hosted by YouTube personality and Center supporter MacDoesIt to be streamed live on Saturday, April 10, at 11 a.m. PT. Watch the celebration at facebook.com/lalgbtcenter or lalgbtcenter.org/watch.
