Mientras en diferentes zonas de Los Ángeles se han realizado marchas y protestas en oposición al establecimiento de albergues para desamparados, vecinas del área de Pico-Union se unieron para dar vida a un centro de recuperación para indigentes.

“Nos enteramos que necesitaban voluntarias y venimos porque nos gusta ayudar a nuestra comunidad”, dijo Irma Zamora. “Nos agrada ayudar a quien lo necesita y no nos ofendemos que lleguen desamparados a este lugar”.

La construcción del centro, que tomó tan solo seis meses, estuvo a cargo de organizaciones y voluntarios, liderados por la National Health Foundation (NHF).
