As the lead agency in the Los Angeles County Continuum of Care, LAHSA coordinates and manages over $70 million dollars annually in Federal, State, County and City funds for programs providing shelter, housing and services to homeless persons in Los Angeles City and County. LAHSA currently administers funding to over programs at over 100 agencies operating within the City and County, all working to help homeless people to achieve independence and stability in permanent housing. Our common goal: to end homelessness as we know it.
Our partner agencies provide a continuum of programs
ranging from outreach, access centers, emergency
shelters, safe havens, transitional and permanent
housing, and prevention along with the necessary
supportive services designed to provide the tools
and skills required to attain a stable housing
environment. Specialized programs funded through
LAHSA address a wide-range of issues related to
homelessness, including but not limited to: domestic
violence, mental illness, substance abuse, job
training, family strengthening, health, mainstream
benefits enrollment, and most importantly,
supportive short and long-term housing.
In addition to funding, LAHSA provides program
design, outcomes assessment and technical assistance
our partner agencies. Please use the navigation bar
