Skid Row Portable Toilet Monitoring Program:
In partnership with the LA Mayor’s Office, the Skid Row Brigade, and the ILM Foundation, the A-Mark Foundation is funding a pilot program to collect data on the effectiveness of monitoring the approximately 50 portable toilets installed on Skid Row last year in response to COVID.
Without monitors, the units are quickly vandalized or destroyed. The monitors are able to help the Mayor’s office prioritize resources to keep the toilets in better repair. Our goal is to use the data to attract ongoing funding from larger organizations after the three-month trial runs from May 10 to August 10, 2021.
Please contact us for details on how to contribute to ongoing funding for this program.
