Leadership Redondo Class of 2021 Tiny Homes Improvement Project
Leadership Redondo Beach (LRB) was created through the Redondo Beach Chamber of
Commerce in 2000 with the mission of connecting individuals from the civic, business, and
general community to help enhance and strengthen Redondo Beach. The 18-month curriculum
concludes with the implementation of a community project.
Our class of 2021, Team Colabs, did a thorough vetting of projects and determined the greatest need at this time was in helping our fellow citizens who are working to improve their lives.
Our mission became to improve transitional housing units for unhoused Redondo Beach
individuals resulting in pathways to stable living.
Although the unhoused population in Redondo Beach is small, compared to other cities in
Southern California, it’s no secret that this has become a growing challenge in our beach city.
In late December 2020, The Redondo Beach Pallet Shelter program became
the first temporary shelter for unhoused individuals in the Beach Cities. Though initially
constructed as a temporary measure, the City has determined this Pallet Shelter to now be
considered permanent. The shelter, located off Kingsdale Ave in North Redondo is run by the
City of Redondo Beach in partnership with Harbor Interfaith, a San Pedro nonprofit devoted to
helping unhoused individuals get off the streets and into permanent housing.
The Pallet Shelter currently includes 15 individual shelters, providing temporary housing to up to
30 individuals at once. City Council recently approved the purchase of three additional units.
The Palette Shelter also provides on-site portable showers, restrooms, outdoor eating areas,
and mental health counselors and housing coordinators provided by Harbor Interfaith.
Pallet shelters are becoming an increasingly effective way to address the unhoused crisis, as
pallets are reasonably priced and provide a more pleasant environment for individuals to live
temporarily until they are able to get back up on their feet.
We kindly ask your support for the 2021 Leadership Redondo Tiny Homes for the Unhoused
Beautification Project. Our goal is to beautify and improve living conditions for Palette Shelter
residents by creatively painting the tiny homes, as well as providing tables, shade, and other
amenities for residents to enjoy. The goal of these improvements would be to add a sense of
community and belonging for the residents of the program and for the residents of Redondo
Beach, and to create a more comfortable living space for residents of the program during their
