The " streets " of Skid Row and the community itself have been abused and neglected for decades. While some people and street ministries come to this neighborhood with sincere hearts of charity, they leave it in horrible mess. Subjecting the residents of this neighborhood to the most depressing sights.
San Julian Street is the very HEART of the SKID ROW COMMUNITY and any other " normal " neighborhood, this street should ' reflect " the beauty of the community. But for years, it has been neglected by the City, Service providers, visitors and even residents.
Operation Face Lift was preceeded by the " Funky Trash Campaign " and a eight month clean-up lead by the Skid Row Brigade which is a special unit of OG's N Service Association. The Brigade is the " Greatest Volunteer Unit in Downtown Los Angeles"!
