Darlene Burnett had been in and out of drug and alcohol treatment centers since losing her home in 2013. Sometimes she and her young daughter would sleep in her car. She was referred to the Housing Authority of the County of Los Angeles (HAC0LA) by Pacific Clinics and, although hesitant at first, she accepted her Continuum of Care certificate and was referred to the Housing Advisor Unit. After an exhaustive search for an apartment, Ms. Burnett finally found a unit in Monterey Park. HACoLA staff assisted with rent negotiations and provided Ms. Burnett with security deposit assistance, enabling her to use her housing subsidy.
