Why aren’t there more places like this in Los Angeles?

“I joined community members in celebrating the grand opening of the Witmer Heights Apartments, a 49-unit complex for low-income families in the Pico-Union neighborhood. In addition to the one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, the complex also features two community rooms, a rooftop terrace, laundry facilities, a computer center, and a tot lot.”

“Tenants will also have access to free classes on job skills, computer literacy, personal finance, health, nutrition, and more.”

Why aren’t there more places like this in Los Angeles? How much does a good society really cost us? Probably a lot less than we know. Yeah, some of us need a little more help than others of us. It’s cheaper to help them than to punish them for needing help. And anyone who says this is not true is going straight to hell. /sermon
