Councilmember Price joined Para Los Niños (PLN) on April 20 to celebrate the opening of the latest Peace & Healing Center to open in Los Angeles.
PLN will oversee programming at the South LA hub as part of a $2 million pilot program funded through the City of Los Angeles’ Reforms for Equity and Public Acknowledgement of Institutional Racism (L.A. REPAIR) program and created by the LA Civil Rights Department. PLN’s South LA Peace & Healing Center will support local children and families by addressing food and housing insecurity, and connecting the community to mental health resources, quality health care, and education.
“This is a phenomenal opportunity for our neighbors to gain access to brand new programming rooted in community and designed to strengthen family dynamics and foster unity,” said Councilmember Price.
In all, there will be eight centers across the nine communities designated most in need by the city – each called a “REPAIR Zone.” Through their efforts, local-based partners will offer environmental, economic and social healing with unique services to meet the community’s needs.
