AIA|SFV 2014 IDP Design Competition

The competition involves the design of the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission.  Recently, this mission was lost due to fire.  A new site has been selected and the AIA San Fernando Valley has worked with the staff of the mis‐ sion to provide the programmatic requirements.  While Survival Outreach Services has served as an emergency stopgap, the loss of the production, donation, residential facilities and half of the vehicles fleet has caused a sig‐ nificant loss of support of the  mission’s work with the homeless.  This new facility will be enlarged enabling the mission to reduce the homeless population by offering self‐sufficiency, life skills classes and training to the homeless.
