Leveraging powers under the state of emergency on homelessness declared by the Board of Supervisors in January 2023, Los Angeles County has launched Pathway Home, a major expansion of its ongoing efforts to resolve encampments countywide, including recreational vehicles, in partnership with local jurisdictions and unincorporated communities.
With Pathway Home, the County will reduce unsheltered homelessness in specific communities by helping people living on the streets come indoors, receive supportive services they need to achieve housing stability, and ultimately move into permanent housing.

A Pathway to Permanent Housing
Pathway Home draws on lessons from previous multi-jurisdictional emergency housing efforts, such as Project Roomkey and the City of LA’s Inside Safe Initiative. The County is mobilizing and coordinating an all-hands-on-deck approach that offers people a diverse suite of interim housing options and comprehensive services to end their homelessness.
A Multipronged Approach to Bringing People Indoors
With Pathway Home, the County will use its emergency powers and continue to work with our invaluable local service providers, the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, and other jurisdictional partners to expand, enhance and expedite:
The number of specialized teams from the LA County Departments of Mental Health, Health Services, Public Health and other agencies – as well as from trusted partners and community organizations – to work intensively with people who have the most complex physical and behavioral health needs.
A diverse array of interim housing at non-congregate hotels and available shelters that people can move into immediately while being matched to rental subsidies, benefits, and other assistance to secure permanent housing. The County will also continue efforts to expand the number of permanent housing units, such as acquiring and refurbishing motels and hotels under Homekey.
Supportive services that clients both want and need at both interim and permanent housing, which can include physical and behavioral healthcare, substance use disorder treatment, and ensuring they are receiving their entitled benefits such as healthcare and subsidized housing.
