To the Homeless and Poverty Committee:
Good afternoon honorable Council Members. I am here today to beseech your help. My name is Dr. Scott Sale and I am one of the advocates and founders of Safe Parking LA that started over 6 years ago at Leo Baeck Temple. Our 501C3’s mission is to be as supportive as possible of the initiation of Safe parking lot programs in every council district. We have worked toward a City wide Safe Parking program as in every council district there are people experiencing vehicular homelessness and it is only getting worse.
MJ is a 62 year old gentleman who was living in an apartment in South LA until he decided it was not safe for him any longer.Read More
