Los Angeles Community Action Network (LACAN) is a Homeless / Community outreach program that provides resources to the homeless in Downtown LA. Berliner Architects is working to redevelop their existing facility into a space that can house meetings, connections, and events for the homeless.
An important element of LACAN is their focus on Wellness, where they provide health services and teach classes on eating healthy. An aspect of this in the new LACAN facility is a roof top garden which provides the homeless with a space for urban farming in an otherwise food desert creating a new green oasis in the center of Skid Row and allowing for the homeless to grow their own food.
