A Different Kind of City Living

Communes were popular in the 60’s, but most of them failed.  Not so with the Eco-Village, an apartment building tucked in the middle of one of L.A.'s densest neighborhoods. About forty people live in this “intentional community” in Koreatown. They are committed to sustainability, affordability, social justice and respect for each other and nature. But what is it like to live here? Reporter Dija Dowling takes a tour of the Eco-Village led by 80-year-old, Lois Arkin, whose vision 23 years ago made the Eco-Village a model of cooperative living.

Homeless Special

On any given night, 47,000 men, women, and children live on the streets of Los Angeles – sleeping in tents, cars, on sidewalks, and in emergency shelters. The enormity of the homeless crisis led SoCal Connected to ask the difficult questions: How do we create more affordable housing? Are we willing to pay for critical services such as mental health counseling, medical care, job training, and alcohol/drug rehab programs? With limited resources available, how do we decide who gets helped first? And how do we prevent more people from ending up on the streets every day?
