As people are released from jails and prisons in California to stem the spread of COVID-19, we at A New Way of Life knew we couldn’t stand idly by. This week, we obtained another home in South LA (pictured) that will allow us to take in up to 9 more women. The new home will open in the next few days. We are thrilled to have expanded capacity during this critical and uncertain time.
Already, we are picking up women from jail who are being released due to COVID-19. Last week, our housing coordinator April picked up prospective resident Tina (below, right) from Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood. Tina later reunited with her family.
