San Pedro Region: Project Achieve and the Gatekeeper Project
The Long Beach area is plagued with an enormous number of homeless persons. There is never enough funding to help all of this population make a new life, so we work day to day to help them. Project Achieve provides sixty- to ninety-day emergency shelter for adult men and women, case management services, basic skills workshops, and job and housing linkages. Gatekeeper Project provides a friendly visitor program which brings food, utility assistance, taxi vouchers to the elderly, and case management services for clients with specific needs.
