Move In Day at Step Up on Vine!

March 29, 2013
Tenants Move In to Step Up on Vine

I’m so pleased to tell you that on Monday, March 25th, thirty two formerly homeless neighbors moved into their new home units at Step Up on Vine! The day was a very special day for all of us. Each of these individuals has lived on the streets, mostly the streets of Hollywood, with a mental illness for years. For these individuals who have heard “no” for many years, moving into Step Up on Vine was an important “yes” that brought smiles to their faces. We bought the property in May, 2009 and less than four years later, it ended over 100 years of cumulative homelessness for these 32 people, in one day. Thanks to the Step Up on Second Housing Committee, and the full Board of Directors for its amazing support. And to Aileen Getty for really making it all possible.
