AHF’s announcement urges City Hall to try to turn Clark’s 550 rooms into homeless and very low-income housing and to help identify and help reallocate what AHF estimates are thousands of other vacant SROs and other hotel rooms in Los Angeles.
The ad is another part of AHF’s (‘Save Our Single-room-occupancy hotels’) SOS campaign urging the city to preserve single-occupancy buildings in Los Angeles and stop allowing developers to demolish and/ or convert those properties into luxury units, or, as in the Clark’s case, store it vacant for years while the city’s homeless crisis exploded.
The advertising notes “All the empty hotel rooms in downtown LA could house all the homeless people currently there,” and that “City Hall received over $1 billion in federal COVID relief and spent nothing on housing for the homeless.”
Since 2017, AHF, through its Healthy Housing Foundation (HHF), has purchased, restored and reoccupied a total of 13 single-occupancy buildings and other hotels and motels, totaling 1,415 low-cost rooms, providing conclusively giving everyday Angelinos access to affordable housing that the City of Los Angeles desperately needed.
