The City of Monterey Park is in communication with the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) and is closely monitoring Project Roomkey at two locations in the City.
Project Roomkey is a collaborative effort by the State, LA County, and LAHSA to secure hotel and motel rooms for vulnerable people experiencing homelessness. It provides a way for people who don’t have a home to stay safe inside to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Project Roomkey seeks temporary housing for people who are experiencing homelessness and have shown no symptoms of the illness. The two locations in the City are the Lincoln Plaza Hotel, 123 S. Lincoln Avenue and Garvey Inn, 1040 E. Garvey Avenue. These sites do not accept walk-in or walk-up clients. Prior to arrival, individuals are pre-screened and selected by a homeless services provider then transported to their assigned location. The sites are not being used to quarantine individuals or treat Covid-19 patients, but provide a safe and separate place for vulnerable homeless individuals that are elderly or have underlying health conditions to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
The safety and security of the Monterey Park community is the City’s highest priority during this COVID-19 pandemic and the City will continue to engage closely with LA County representatives to stay informed about Project Roomkey.
