The LA Times recently ran an article about the Jordan Downs housing, which is directly next to our partner ministry, Lighthouse Church and community center. It has had an oppressive effect on that community for many years. While this might be another false hope for the community, I am praying that the government resources can be used to a very positive end.
It is interesting that their model is Cabrini Greens in Chicago which has displaced many in that community. Our overflow housing site is about a mile south of Jordan Downs.
