Menlo Family Housing is a joint project between LTSC CDC and Koreatown Youth and Community Center that will be located in the Koreatown/Wilshire neighborhoods. When completed, Menlo Family Housing will provide 60 units of permanent and affordable housing targeting low- and very-low income families earning between 30% and 50% AMI. Of these 60 units, 30 units will be reserved for homeless households, including a set-aside of 5 units for Transition Age Youth diagnosed with mental disorders and a set-aside of 15 units for families with children diagnosed with mental disorders. HACLA has committed 30 Project-Based Section 8 vouchers to support the homeless units. Menlo Family Housing will also supply a variety of amenities on-site including residential community rooms and office space for the Koreatown Youth and Community Center’s afterschool and educational programs.
