The City of Los Angeles takes homelessness very seriously. The City adopted a Comprehensive Homeless Strategy to end homelessness in our City.

The City and its partners, including the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA), are working with community partners to provide homeless individuals and families the resources they need to achieve independent, stable and secure housing. Services available include interim housing, shelter, supportive housing, rapid re-housing, public sanitation (restrooms/showers) services, meals, storage of personal property, transportation assistance, alcohol/drug, and mental health counseling, job training, and case management. Additional shelter beds are available during the winter months of December - March.
