Since its 2020 launch in Los Angeles, Homekey has helped thousands of unhoused people get off the streets by converting hotels and motels into housing. Parthenia Place, managed by EAH Housing for the Housing Authority for the City of Los Angeles (HACLA), was the first completed site for this innovative program. EAH Housing works directly with HACLA to help manage its Homekey properties and advises the agency on how to create a long-term housing solution.
On September 9, at Parthenia Place, Governor Newsom’s administration announced a $2.75 billion historic investment in Homekey. These funds will expand the program throughout the state to purchase and renovate buildings, such as hotels, motels, vacant apartment buildings, and transform them into up to 14,000 long-term housing units for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
It was an honor for Parthenia Place to welcome Secretary Lourdes Castro Ramírez of California Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency, Douglas Guthrie, president and CEO of the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA), Mayor Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles and Nury Martinez, president of the Los Angeles City Council.
