The program, known as Free Safe Storage Venice, offers unhoused residents of Venice a secure storage facility for their personal property and enables them to access the City of LA’s Winter Shelter Program during the cold winter months (transportation to and from the shelter limits passengers’ personal property to what they can carry on their laps). Occupy Venice is supporting Venice Community Housing (VCH) in this effort by recruiting volunteers, helping fund raise, along with outreach.
Every day from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. people can access their property, stored in one of 26 65-gallon bins in a locked container provided by the City. With all 26 bins currently full, VCH is working to supply additional bins to meet demand.
Volunteers are desperately needed! Please contact VCH at (310) 399-4100 if you can help.
