The County and City of LA formed LAHSA to be the lead agency to oversee the Los Angeles Continuum of Care. We are one partner of many who are working on the enormous challenge of ending homelessness. We primarily take on a coordinating role in the region by applying for and administering funding to over 100 service providers. We aim to take a community-based grassroots approach that builds on the strength within communities to address the challenge. LAHSA also has a department that provides outreach services to people living on the streets.
