What’s New at Well Baby Center?
The Future Home of Well Baby Center Coming Soon…
Watch for progress updates and photos on the making of Marian Place!
After more than a decade of service to low and middle-income families, we are expanding our mission to include helping the most vulnerable families living in our city. Well Baby Center and Venice Community Housing Corp. have partnered to create a world-class pilot project to provide permanent supportive housing, including onsite clinical and parenting services, all at no cost to the families living there.
This child-friendly, community-based living arrangement will provide permanent housing and supportive services for approximately 20 resident women and children. Marian Place will be the model for other integrated, holistic affordable housing projects that will be replicated throughout Los Angeles.
Having a passion both for conserving Los Angeles’s historic courtyard bungalows, and the repurposing of these iconic properties into healing living spaces, Well Baby Center’s founder and CEO, Dr. Deborah Groening-Rother, donated the Marian Place property to Venice Community Housing Corporation.
Dr. Groening-Rother believes that families who have experienced homelessness, domestic violence, and other life challenges need a special environment to achieve recovery, resilience, and restoration.
Venice Community Housing will manage the property, while Well Baby Center will provide parenting and counseling services for the residents, and to the public as well. Renovations for Marian Place began in early 2021 and will be completed by early 2023.
The Marian Place property is located at the corner of Marian Place and Venice Boulevard South of Lincoln Blvd.
