Business Leaders Task Force on Homelessness Releases Updated Action Plan

Created by the Business Leaders Task Force in late 2010, Home for Good is a five-year action plan to end chronic and veteran homelessness in L.A. County which draws upon local, regional and national best practices to dramatically reduce the number of people living on our streets.

Since its launch, the initiative has gained significant support from more than 100 key stakeholders in the public, private, nonprofit, business, government, faith and philanthropic sectors who believe that homelessness is a solvable issue.

Having recently celebrated Home for Good's first anniversary, United Way of Greater L.A. and the L.A. Chamber of Commerce published a detailed report outlining its Year One achievements while also setting the following priorities for Year Two:

  • Leveraging public and private funds through the HFG Funders Collaborative to generate permanent supportive housing through a streamlined, one-stop funding process;

  • Using data on the specific needs of L.A. County's homeless population to reallocate and target existing resources to where it's needed most; and

  • Building hundreds of permanent supportive housing units for our region's military veterans and chronically homeless individuals.


In the next four years, the Task Force and its community partners will continue to push for systemic change which allows them to focus on rapidly re-housing those in crisis and work tirelessly to ensure that everyone in Los Angeles has a place to call home.
