Be Part of the Solution
The Homeless Initiative distributes Measure H funding to more than 100 service providers dedicated to helping people experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
These community-based nonprofit organizations are on the frontlines of helping their unhoused neighbors, providing outreach, case management, housing navigation, and other services. Though Measure H funding has enabled service providers to expand significantly in recent years, they can always use more help because of the magnitude of the crisis.

Homeless Outreach Portal (LA-HOP)
Did you see someone experiencing homelessness who needs help? Notice a homeless neighbor who seems to be struggling with their physical and/or mental health? You can help them by using the Los Angeles Homeless Outreach Portal or LA-HOP, and requesting that outreach teams be dispatched to the area.
For medical or mental health emergencies, of if you are concerned about illegal activity, please call 911 instead.
If you come across a family with minor children experiencing homelessness, have them call 211 and ask to be connected to the Coordinated Entry System for Families.
If you’re a property owner, LeaseUp can help you unlock the potential of your vacant properties to house some of your most vulnerable neighbors. Under the program, property developers, owners and managers have access to a free online portal where they can share their listing with case managers, who can then match the unit with a rent-ready client in need of housing and later provide regular on-site check-ins and 24/7 support for property owners and managers. LeaseUp also offers property owners holding fees and protection against damages, as well as vacancy loss funds in case a client match falls through. The innovative program provides an easy-to-use platform to optimize the supply/demand matrix of affordable housing.
