Homeless Navigation Center Wins 2019 Westside Urban Forum Award
JFAK’s Homeless Navigation Center for the City of Los Angeles’ Council District 8 took home a 2019 Westside Urban Forum (WUF) Westside Prize Design Award. Associate Derek Greene and Architect Lung Chi Chang accepted the honor on behalf of JFAK at WUF’s awards gala, held at the Hotel Casa del Mar in Santa Monica on June 14.
Designed using pre-fabricated modular units, the South LA center will serve Angelenos experiencing homelessness by consolidating several services under one roof – storage for personal belongings, restrooms and showers, laundry facilities, and information and job training.
