LOS ANGELES – With freezing temperatures forecast this week for the Antelope Valley, Santa Clarita Valley, and Mount Wilson area, authorities planned to open winter shelters.
Temperatures in the low to mid-20s and dipping down into the upper teens were forecast for the Antelope Valley, Santa Clarita Valley, and Mount Wilson area through Wednesday, leading the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority to open winter shelters for people experiencing homelessness in those areas, the agency announced.
LAHSA Homeless Engagement Teams will be out working to connect people with shelters, or clients can call 211 to reserve a bed. People can also be issued motel vouchers under the Augmented Winter Shelter Program if they call 211. Transportation will be provided to shelters or motels, the agency said.
According to the city of Inglewood’s website, they run an emergency shelter program in coordination with St. Margaret’s Center located in the unincorporated area of Lennox. For more details contact 310-672-2208.
St. Margaret’s Center is located at 10217 S Inglewood Avenue, Inglewood, 90304. The center also provides case management, food pantry, motel vouchers, and referrals to other resources.
