Wellnest is advancing safe, innovative solutions to affordable housing for transition age youth (TAY) with the announcement of its first housing development project — The Nest on Florence — 51 newly constructed furnished units in South Los Angeles.
Groundbreaking has taken place on the community-based, supportive development at 410 E. Florence Ave. The five-story, 40,808-square foot building will feature 34 studios of about 420 square feet, 16 one-bedrooms at 428 square feet, and one two-bedroom manager’s apartment.
The target residents will be transition age youth between 18 and 25 who are living with mental health issues, along with TAY families (young adults with children), all of whom have been recently homeless or are at risk for homelessness.
At the Nest on Florence, our young adults and families will have an opportunity to practice life skills in a supportive and safe place that is home — a place of promise and a place of hope,” said Charlene Dimas-Peinado, President & CEO of Wellnest, formerly known as the Los Angeles Child Guidance Clinic.
