'The Six' Provides Housing for Homeless and Disabled US Veterans

'The Six,' a new housing development in Los Angeles' MacArthur Park neighborhood, offers military veterans a home to help them readjust to civilian life. The complex holds 52 units, and these are divided among the 40,250 square-foot grounds to include both private and public space.

The Six's name comes from the military expression "I got your six," which means that someone is watching one's back. The name is fitting, as military veterans often struggle to reintegrate themselves into society after having been in combat. As such, The Six is designed to be accessible for disabled veterans, and the units of the housing complex are reserved for veterans who have experienced homeless since their return to US soil.

The Six is designed to foster community as much as possible, giving veterans understanding neighbors to help them settle into a calmer life.
