This is a good start, I suppose. It’s better than parking tickets and fines and whatnot. Yet, if the city has to set aside parking lots for homeless families with cars…how about actual housing? Clearly, there is a need and a HUGE underlying problem.
The existing lot is operated by the nonprofit Dreams for Change at Jewish Family Service’s Joan & Irwin Jacobs Campus on Balboa Avenue. The lot provides space for 40 vehicles, serving around 50 to 60 individuals nightly, with an emphasis on families.
Another 20 spaces will be added, paid for by the city and donations to JFS.
