LOS ANGELES, February 7, 2024 — The American Red Cross Los Angeles Region will close its shelters at ONEgeneration Senior Enrichment Center (18255 Victory Blvd., Reseda, CA 91335) and Marie Kerr Park (2723-A W Rancho Vista Blvd., Palmdale, 93551) effective immediately. Residents affected by the storms can still receive assistance by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS (1 (800) 733-2767).
Red Cross emergency shelters are designed to meet the immediate, short-term needs of impacted residents until long-term efforts can get underway. The Red Cross also plays a critical role in helping families and communities recover in the weeks and months after a disaster. For the past four days, the Red Cross mobilized local disaster workers – 90 percent of which were volunteers – to help neighbors affected by the recent storms.
