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
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.

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
