A groundbreaking ceremony will be held in East Los Angeles today to launch the construction of a transitional housing facility for former foster youths.

Sponsors of Sunday's AIDS Walk benefit took in barely 30% of their $100,000 goal, leaving AIDS Care Inc. officials seeking new fund-raisers to make up the difference, board president Doug Halter said Monday. More than $30,000 will have been collected when all the pledges are received, Halter said. But the shortfall means other events will have to be organized to generate the $300,000 or more the group says it needs to care for its clients.

The residents must qualify for a mortgage, and--similar to the national Habitat for Humanity program--must agree to help build the houses with their own labor.
