L.A. City Attorney Sues Assisted Care Operators

 City Attorney Mike Feuer said Tuesday he has filed a lawsuit accusing the operators of two assisted-care facilities of subjecting mentally disabled residents to deplorable conditions and subjecting them to punishments that violated their personal rights.

According to the City Attorney’s Office, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge appointed a receiver to work with local and state agencies to relocate people from the Agape Mission House and Agape Home Church, both located in the Adams District on Hobart Boulevard.

Officials from Agape could not be reached for comment on the allegations.

According to the lawsuit, the facilities are both unlicensed, and they both have a “long history of noncompliance with applicable laws, licensing regulations and restrictions, health and safety codes and landlord tenant laws.”
