What about the building?

The 4 story brown building on the corner of 5th and Elm in Long Beach was built in 1922 and was originally the AT&T Overseas Operator Building. After the Long Beach Earthquake in 1933 the building was rebuilt and continued to be used as a telephone operator’s building.

The building stood vacant for a while and was purchased in the 1980s for conversion to an office building; the developer improved the building seismically but did not complete the project.

MHA bought the vacant property on January 2, 1990 to use as the site for the Village.

I always have been so happy that the Village has wonderful programs to help people improve their quality of life, the one thing I have seen, is you do not have a program
that moves people with lived experience working as independent of others organizations that can add to want you have.I myself have a PhD in live experience that
is not on paper,and no one with a collage degree can match it,one does not get knowledge from books but for experience and wisdom to use that experience in a health
and caring way, has no price that value the human experience more.Thanks for your time, the most valuable thing people have.
