Forum: Housing the Homeless – 10/18/18 @ 7pm

We see the crisis of homelessness in Los Angeles every day and we all would like to be a part of the solution. Please attend our forum on homelessness on October 18th at 7pm at the Glassell Park Community & Senior Center to find out what you can do to help get people who want help off of the streets.

HOUSING THE HOMELESS IN OUR COMMUNITY
A panel discussion on how to provide supportive and permanent housing for the homeless in our community.
Join the conversation (moderated by Doug Smith of the LA Times) with panelists:
Meredith Berkson – Homeless Initiative, County of Los Angeles
Christina Miller – Homeless Strategies, LA Mayor’s Office
Jesus Torres – PATH (People Assisting the Homeless)
Speakers from the Alexandria House

Glassell Park Community & Senior Center is located at

Free Parkway Trees Planted For You: Sign Up Now!

Because this program was so popular last year, Glassell Park Neighborhood Council has once again teamed up with Northeast Trees to bring you free trees to green your parkway (which will be planted for you, but which you are responsible for watering), so all of Glassell Park’s streets can be lovely, shady, tree-lined streets.

AND IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT AESTHETICS—TREES CAN:

  • improve our health: slow our heart rates/blood pressure & decrease muscle tension [1]; increase our attention spans [2]; increase the benefits of exercise [3]; promote feelings of contentedness & relaxation while also reducing stress hormones [4]; reduce interpersonal aggression (as well as crime rates) [5]; and, believe it or not, improve community bonds that help us thrive [6]
  • significantly lessen the urban heat island effect by shading surfaces that would normally be getting hot from sunlight; this in turn reduces how hard our air conditioning systems have to work, thereby reducing both the heat emitted by AC compressors and our CO2 emissions, which provides additional cooling
  • help clean our air: yes, they even reduce smog and the (even more harmful to our health) particulate pollution that results from bare soil (exacerbated by years of drought), leaf blowers (despite being illegal, they’re everywhere), and vehicles
  • retain rainwater (which eventually travels down the leaves, branches, and trunk, and into the ground, instead of washing straight out to the ocean, polluted by the toxic substances picked up in streets)
  • provide habitat to the neighborhood’s many birds
  • make the neighborhood quieter by reducing noise transmission

CLICK ON THE IMAGE ABOVE OR GO TO GLASSELLPARKNC.ORG/TREES TO SIGN UP FOR YOUR TREE(S) TODAY.

If you’ve wanted a tree in your parkway, but just weren’t sure how to make it happen, this is your chance.

If you need any help with your trees after they are planted, there are several community volunteers on hand to help who have been trained by TreePeople, so you will always have someone to ask for help if you need it (just email trees@glassellparknc.org).  🙂

NOTE: FORMS WILL BE COLLECTED OVER A PERIOD OF a few MONTHS, AND TURNED IN as a group (date tbd, when there’s a noticeable falloff in new applicants), FOR A PLANT DATE SOME TIME IN this WINTER or coming spring (ANYWHERE FROM december 2018 TO april 2019)

The Summer Lunch Program offers FREE meals in public parks throughout the city between June 11th and August 12th.

 

Friends:

I want to make sure you are aware of a food program offered by the Department of Recreation and Parks (RAP) for school-aged youth during the summer months.

The Summer Lunch Program offers FREE meals in public parks throughout the city between June 11th and August 12th.  

This program is in partnership with Los Angeles Unified School District and is part of the City’s implementation of the Good Food Purchasing Policy which will ensure public food dollars are spent in a way that delivers the best quality food with the highest nutritional value to our youth during the summer months when school is out.

This program is close to my heart — it is one of the very first policy items I worked on as a newly elected member of the Los Angeles City Council, and in my role as Chair of the Arts, Entertainment, Parks, and Los Angeles River Committee. This program is a tremendous benefit to many families in the communities I represent, and helps them save money on food during summer months while also making use of our wonderful public park space. No application or proof of income is needed.

Families can bring their children to one of the participating City of Los Angeles parks and enjoy a meal:

  • Bellevue Recreation Center
  • Echo Park Recreation Center
  • Glassell Park Recreation Center
  • Hollywood Recreation Center
  • Lemon Grove Recreation Center
  • Shatto Recreation Center
  • Unidad Park
  • Yucca Park Community Center

Thank you in advance of helping me spread the word about this very important program. For location information, click here.

Kind regards,
