Los Angeles Celebrates Opening of James M. Wood Community Center

 

"Los Angeles Celebrates Opening of James M. Wood Community Center"

Who:
Los Angeles City Council Member Jan Perry, Los Angeles Police Department Assistant Chief of Police James P. McDonnell

What:
The Opening Ceremony of the James M. Wood Community Center

 

When:
Monday, December 16, 2002 at 9:30 a.m.

Where:
400 East 5th Street, Los Angeles

Los Angeles: The late James M. Wood, the founder of Single Resident Occupancy (SRO) Housing and former Chairman of the Community Redevelopment Agency, was a visionary leader who strongly believed that any plan to revitalize downtown Los Angeles must include the redevelopment of the area known as "Skid Row."

Located in one of the poorest areas of Los Angeles, the James M. Wood Community Center is the first facility in the Central City east neighborhood, specifically designed to meet the social, cultural and recreational needs of the residents in the area.

Offering a broad range of programs to fulfill the needs of senior Los Angeles residents and persons with disabilities, the Center will maintain resources for supplying meals, transportation services and vital social services. The Center will also operate a community recovery center by implementing an on-going 12-step program that will provide personal case management for area residents.

The Center’s existence and scheduled opening day celebration is a culmination of efforts by both the community it serves, and the tireless volunteerism spirit of James M. Wood.

A continental breakfast will be served beginning at 9:00 a.m., and invited speakers will address the celebratory audience at 9:30 a.m.

This Media Advisory was prepared by Public Information Officer Jack Richter, Media Relations Section, 213-485-3586.
