It’s only a week until the 2017 Los Angeles Homeless Count on January 26th. Join the over 1,000 volunteers participating in this annual census of our neighbors experiencing homelessness throughout Los Angeles. The Greater Wilshire area needs about 45 volunteers for the 22 Census Tracts we’ll canvass. This is a visual-only count done mostly by car in teams of 2-4 and we’ll provide training on the night of the census.
Located at the northern end of Koreatown and the southern end of East Hollywood, Wilshire Center and St. Andrews Square, Western Avenue serves its community with mom-and-pop restaurants, personal services, furniture stores, and home-oriented shops. Great Streets seeks to improve the streetscape on Western, creating a more pleasant experience for pedestrians. In partnership with the community, we will help this corridor realize its full potential as a thriving commercial and community center that can bring together its many diverse and active neighborhoods. Join us for a great day to beautify Western Avenue!
