You can learn a lot more about them on their website at http://www.skidrow.org but I will post a few photos here from their website. Some of these places may look familar as I have photographed some of them myself and they may be seen in some of my current portfolio.
As a side note, not to toot my own horn too loudly .... Some of my architectural photography and homeless photography is being looked at by five or so galleries. If any of these folks decides to represent me I will donate the money from any of my homeless series photos to the homeless. The galleries which are currently looking at my work are; C4 Contemporary Art in Los Angeles / Hollywood, Stephen Cohen Gallery in Los Angeles, Contemporary Works / Vintage Works in Chalfont PA, DNJ Gallery in Los Angeles, and Fotovision in Berkeley CA.
Back to Skid Row Housing Trust ....
The commentary here is that this place would be open in 2009. This information off their website had not been updated. The New Carver Apartments are up and operational.
There is a nice story on this building at http://www.skidrow.org/pdf/LAT%20Built%20with%20Hope%204.29.2009.pdf and another at http://www.skidrow.org/pdf/NewCarverDTLAN_091809.pdf
The buildings above are just a few of their projects. They cover a wide range of budget and a wide range of architecture. The folks at Skid Row Housing Trust have won numerous awards. Here is a list of a few.
