Of the two, one is now employed, and another resident has since passed background checks for employment.
“Programs like Jobs Plus are crucial for our families in public housing,” said Emilio Salas, LACDA Executive Director. “I’m glad that so many residents can benefit from this Program and ultimately succeed in the goals they set for themselves.
