LA City Councilmember Curren Price hosted an Open House with the Coalition for Responsible Community Development (CRCD) and Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA) on March 4 to inaugurate the “CD9 Neighborhood Resource Center. Located at the Historic Serra Library, the new center will offer a range of FREE services to the South LA community.
In 2021, Councilmember Price made it possible for the two nonprofit organizations to lease the former library facility in District 9 for 25 years, at no charge.
“This opportunity enables CRCD and CHIRLA to expand programming and help countless neighbors for generations to come. And what better way to do it than with FREE services!” added Councilmember Price. “I am so thrilled to add this community gem which had lost its luster and now will serve as a place of support for our residents along their respective journeys.”
The CD9 Neighborhood Resource Center is open Monday through Friday at the Historic Serra Library (4255 S. Olive St., Los Angeles 90037).
CRCD will aid youth and adults seeking employment, and assist local entrepreneurs, among other services. Contact CRCD for services at (323) 616-0813 or email email@example.com.
“CRCD is excited to provide services at the CD9 Neighborhood Resource Center,” said CRCD President and CEO Mark Wilson. “This space allows our organization to provide critical services to young people and families in the community. Some of the services we will provide here include employment training and placement, small business support and housing support services. We will be able to provide these services at this site for a very long time thanks to Councilmember Curren Price and his team.”
