  1. My family arrived 1-31-2022 we were told it’s a 6 month stay and they offer extensions upon entry. I informed them my husband was sick and my 3 year old too; the case manager claim to know a process to expedite my services, well let’s just say they are not properly informed on anything if you don’t come with services they don’t have any to offer, the apartments are infested with roaches and the meeting are a waste of time. I can’t tell you one successful lead they have given me, since entry they force you to look for housing that your income doesn’t support with the constant threat of kicking you out in 6 months to add more insult to injury they waited 3 months into my stay to apply for my family an emergency housing voucher and now served us a 30 day notice to get out. During my time here I had to travel to Compton to another center in Compton called volunteer of America for help they connected me to proper resources to help my family and even issued us gas cards clothing card and provided food, the people that claim to advocate for us aren’t knowledgeable on anything.

    I stayed here and it was an amazing staff. I was not fond of the staff going through the donations before opening them to the homeless residence there. Other than that, this place was amazing!! Friendly and organized.
