LAUNDRY SUPPORT FOR SRO RESIDENTS

Help my neighbors with laundromat quarters and cleaning supplies

I live at the Altamont Hotel, which is an SRO (single resident occupancy) run by Mission Housing. I've brought up to them that it makes sense for dealing with bed bugs to always have the laundromat be free. However, it makes even more sense in a pandemic to avoid unnecessary public exposure. Maybe after this they'll get the message!

All my neighbors are very low income, most are also disabled, elderly and/or people of color.

Shockingly, at the start of the pandemic Mission Housing closed down the food pantry in our building. If there’s money for Mission Housing’s numerous construction projects why isn’t there enough to support the properties they already have?

Residential hotels (SRO) are high-density low-income housing in urban areas. These living scenarios have historically been highly vulnerable to infectious diseases. Our fear is that this along with other longstanding habitability factors and lack of leadership from Mission Housing will cause the spread of the disease to be even more quick and deadly.

All funds will go directly toward laundry and cleaning supplies to be distributed without question in our community room.

*****UPDATE**** Finally the news has started reporting on what Mission Housing is doing to residents at our hotel. Read the story here.
