At today’s 73rd Annual Cinco Puntos #MemorialDay Ceremony, we paid our respects to the heroic women and men who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in our military.
Located at the crossroads of Boyle Heights and East Los Angeles, Los Cinco Puntos/Five Points Memorial contains plots honoring Mexican American veterans of World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. This pillar recognizes our patriotic veterans who came from our Eastside communities.
Thank you to Tony Zapata and all others who helped organize today’s moving 24-hour patriotic vigil in honor of the fallen. 🇺🇸 #FirstDistrict ... See MoreSee Less
Mike Melcher was living in his car in Covina when the pandemic upended his life. He thought he would be fine because he normally keeps his distance from others. But as the crisis became more serious and more people became infected, his way of life changed.
Mike has heart issues, rheumatoid arthritis, and previously suffered a stroke. He feared exposure to the virus due to his underlying medical conditions.
Recently, he found temporary housing by way of Project Roomkey, a Los Angeles County initiative to house homeless individuals in hotel rooms during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Project Roomkey is meant to house homeless individuals who are either 65 and older or who have preexisting medical conditions that put them at higher risk of hospitalization. It’s not meant to house individuals who have contracted the coronavirus.
