In a recent letter to his constituents, Hollywood Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell (13th Council District), shared the following information about the second Hollywood Bridge Housing location at the historic Hollywood Studio Club on Lodi Place. The other Bridge Housing facility is currently in operation on Schrader Avenue in Hollywood.

Friends:

There are two Bridge Housing facilities in Hollywood, and through a motion I introduced this week, one of them will soon double in size and house over 120 individuals at a time.

My office is working with the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) and People Assisting the Homeless (PATH) to operate "A Bridge Home" housing site at the historic Hollywood Studio Club. The site currently includes 64 beds and is in the process of adding an additional 60 beds; 30 for transition age youth and 30 for adult women. 

In order to effectuate the additional floor expansion, I introduced a motion to identify funding for the project and instruct staff to negotiate a lease with YWCA for the additional space in the existing bridge home site.

Homelessness is the most pressing issue facing our City, and it is paramount that we relentlessly pursue permanent solutions for people experiencing homelessness including bridge housing and permanent supportive housing which now includes over 7,500 units in the construction pipeline.

Kind regards,

Mitch O’Farrell
