LA's Countywide Coordinated Outreach Strategy was given a Special Merit Award at the 33rd Annual Productivity and Quality Awards in October.

The pioneering partnership between the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, the Los Angeles County Departments of Health Services and Mental Health, and the Chief Executive Office has supported the delivery of life-sustaining resources via outreach to many of our 44,000 unsheltered Angelenos.

Through this relatively new system, outreach workers and coordinators throughout LA County are united in their mission to connect LA’s unsheltered to supportive services, shelter, and permanent housing. This lifesaving work is reinforced by the creation and use of innovative technology systems, including the Homeless Management Information Systems (HMIS) and Los Angeles County Homeless Outreach Portal (LA-HOP). These teams, combined with the robust system infrastructure implemented, have been instrumental in supporting more than 30% of all homeless individuals who have been permanently housed since 2017.
