A groundbreaking ceremony will be held in East Los Angeles today to launch the construction of a transitional housing facility for former foster youths. The facility, which will be located in the 200 block of Mednik Avenue, was designed to prevent homelessness and welfare dependency among at-risk youths 18 to 21 who have outgrown foster care. The project is an effort of the Community Enhancement Corp., a nonprofit group, and the Los Angeles County Community Development Commission.
