National CORE will be converting two hotels in Los Angeles into permanent supportive housing for the homeless as part of the State of California’s Project Homekey Program. Transfer of cost-free ownership is anticipated to take place before the end of the year. The two hotels, the Titta Inn and the Super 8, both on Huntington Drive in Los Angeles, have been recently renovated and will provide 100 rooms of transitional housing for the next three to five years.
National CORE has partnered with Union Station Homeless Services to help connect residents to community-based services, medical and mental healthcare services, education, and employment opportunities. Union Station will work closely with residents to foster physical, psychological, and emotional safety as residents overcome the trauma of poverty, hunger, and homelessness.
In 2023, National CORE will begin the redevelopment process and convert the hotels into 100-units of permanent supportive housing. Project Homekey grew out of the State’s Project Roomkey Program, an effort by the State to provide hotel rooms for the homeless community during the pandemic outbreak. “National CORE continues to find ways to house vulnerable populations,” said Sr. Vice President, LA Region David Grunwald. “I am grateful for this opportunity to provide additional housing for the homeless in Los Angeles.”
