Los Angeles adds more public toilets to help homeless on Skid Row

Los Angeles officials are attempting to help homeless on Skid Row in downtown L.A. with the addition of the new Skid Row Community ReFresh Spot hygiene center, a structure to serve homeless with showers, toilets and staff offering referrals to housing and services.

The restrooms also are a response to the fight against a statewide hepatitis A outbreak spread by poor hygiene in homeless camps that has killed more than a dozen people in San Diego.

They will have full-time attendants, called “ambassadors,” to monitor the restrooms and make people feel welcome.

The latest $450,000 facility will have eight toilets and six showers, operating four days a week, in a trailer on a city-owned parking lot between two homeless housing and service agencies. In addition to attendants, the toilets will be monitored by a maintenance crew and security.
