ABOUT US

A collaborative effort

The Coronavirus Community Response System of South Los Angeles (CRSSLA) is a collaborative effort of key community-based organizations, churches, educational institutions and other stakeholders in South Los Angeles.

Our goal is to identify resources for emergency operations centers, medical triage, distribution centers, and command centers that coordinate with various government agencies responsible for deploying information and resources in our area in case of a pandemic or other crises.

Additionally, CRSSLA is developing an immediate deployment strategy to respond and assist where needed.

Community Build is the lead agency for CRSSLA.

University of Southern California

CRSSLA appreciates the support received on this project from USC. Their Government Relations and Homeless Initiative offices both reached out to make sure South Los Angeles was cared for. Given the scope of potential need here, it means a lot to be proactively acknowledged.  A terrible crisis has brought out community spirit and connected us in a collaboration between grassroots leadership and an anchor institution with resources to offer.  USC is sharing the energy and brains of students along with practical help to get food and supplies.  A special shout out to Steve Wesson, Village Ombudsman in University Relations, and Dr. Brenda Wiewel from the USC Initiative to Eliminate Homelessness. This is about rolling up our sleeves and working side by side to get the job done. Fight on!
