How did you do that?
AB 2034 programs share exciting and unique activities and ventures. From opening an art gallery to having breakfast with landlords, read stories of innovative projects of the AB 2034 programs.
The Four Paths Art Studio, a creation of the AB334 enrollees and staff of Humboldt County, announced their first art gallery showing on March 1st, 2003.
While it was easy to identify homeless folks on the street who suffered from a chronic mental illness, it was not easy to employ them. Finding housing was easier than finding jobs. Out of desperation and frustration, the creation of the Four Paths Art Studio was developed.
On October 2, 2002, the Los Angeles County AB 2034 Program and the Homeless and Housing Division jointly hosted a Landlord and Property Developer Breakfast at the California Science Center at Exposition Park.With its theme of “Building Partnerships”, the event provided a forum to disseminate information regarding the services available to tenants with a psychiatric disability and to encourage landlords and developers to expand housing resources for this population.Resources/services to support successful independent community living for mentally ill tenants include AB 2034 housing funds, Homeless Section 8 Certificates and 24/7 crisis response by mental health providers.
