From ABC 7 News:

El Sereno community leaders and Caltrans have partnered with the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles to help a group of homeless activists in the area.

The group known as Reclaiming Our Homes started illegally occupying the Caltrans-owned homes in March.

Now, thanks to a new transitional housing program, the activists can legally occupy some of the homes.

"I'm extremely grateful for the community and for this push that was very much needed," said Martha Escudero, a single mother who is a part of the group and now benefiting from the program. "Especially during this pandemic, and being able to stay safe."
