The Action Plan

On February 9, 2016, the Board of Supervisors approved an unprecedented action plan of nearly four dozen interlocking strategies—focusing on six key areas—to combat homelessness. The County engaged stakeholders across the region in confronting this shared humanitarian crisis. More than 100 community groups, 30 cities and an array of County’s leaders joined together to create an ambitious but achievable path forward.

Pursuing the Promise Together

On June 7, 2017, the Los Angeles County Homeless Initiative, in partnership with LA Voice, hosted an Interfaith Summit on Homelessness to highlight opportunities for enhancing collaboration and services for our homeless neighbors.  Follow-up meetings were held in each of the eight Service Planning Areas throughout the month of July to continue discussions and information-sharing on how to integrate the work of the faith communities alongside the work of the Homeless Initiative.  If you were unable to participate or would like more information, please email us at homelessinitiative@lacounty.govTo assist your faith congregation and discern its readiness, ability, and desire to integrate and serve, please complete the discernment guide and return the last page to the Homeless Initiative.
