Skid Row ReFresh Spot Gets New Location

July 30, 2019 in | Comments (0)

A lauded hygiene center in Skid Row is on the move. After months of uncertainty, a long-term home has been secured.

The Skid Row Community ReFresh Spot, which includes toilets, hand-washing stations, showers and laundry facilities, opened in December 2017 at 557 S. Crocker St. After some early ups and downs, the project operated by Homeless Healthcare Los Angeles is open 24 hours a day and serves approximately 700 people daily.

Despite the success, the ReFresh Spot must move. It is on a lot owned by the neighboring Weingart Center, and the homeless services provider plans to build a residential tower for homeless and low-income individuals on the site. Although no groundbreaking date has been set, an effort to secure a new location has been in the works for months.
