The resource provides: information and referrals to services that best meet individual needs, through a 24 hour 2-1-1 call line or website. An online community calendar connects people to local events that offer services and community connections, special programs that provide outreach and care navigation to assist people with accessing and obtaining services.

Simply 2-1-1 to access services.

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? Then you can help them by filling out an outreach request and alert us as to any specific concerns you may have regarding the person’s well-being. As outreach capacity is limited, requests for those with more serious medical and/or mental health needs may be prioritized.

Landlord Incentives

LeaseUp is new program that helps landlords navigate the process of filling units with people in need of housing. LeaseUp partners property owners with housing non-profits. These organizations offer resources including incentives and case management expertise in matching homeless clients with appropriate housing, and continuing to work with formerly homeless renters. The LeaseUp program is operated with People Assisting The Homeless  – PATH. How it works: landlords sign up via the website. Within a day, PATH staff contact landlords and orient them on the program. If a landlord opts to enroll their unit, non-profit staff inspect the site and provide a holding fee prior to client placement. Non-profit staff work with both clients and landlords to place people in appropriate units. When the homeless individual becomes the renter, non-profit case managers continue to support to ensure success. LeaseUp is funded at $3 million per year from Measure H, the 2017 county sales tax measure to end homelessness. The initiative is a scaled-up version of a successful pilot program operated by PATH.

The Los Angeles County Development Authority’s (LACDA) Homeless Incentive Program (HIP) offers monetary incentives to encourage landlords to rent their available units to LACDA’s homeless Section 8 voucher holders. Funding for the program comes as part of the Homeless Prevention Initiative, a collaborative effort between multiple County agencies supported by funding from Los Angeles County Measure H. Cities that partnered with LACDA so far to operate a HIP include: Los Angeles, Long Beach, Pasadena, Burbank, Redondo Beach, Glendale, Pomona, Norwalk, and Culver City. Programs include receiving one month’s free rent to hold available housing units, payment of rental application fees, move-in assistance, vacancy loss payments, and damage claims. The process of joining the Homeless Incentive Program (HIP) goes as following: landlords complete a Pre-Request for Tenancy Approval form. LACDA staff will contact the landlord to schedule an inspection of the vacant unit within a short period of time. The landlord enters into a signed agreement with LACDA to hold the unit for a homeless individual or family and receives a monetary incentive in an amount up to one month’s rent. A homeless individual or family with an active LACDA voucher is referred to a vacant unit. The Homeless Incentive Program (HIP) is also merged with the Landlord Veteran Incentive Program (VIP) – all of of the benefits and incentives will remain the same while LACDA will continue to assisted its veterans and homeless families through HIP.
