Collaborative Coordinates $213 Million to Support Ending Homelessness

It is a record breaking year for the Home For Good Funders Collaborative!

The Home For Good Funders Collaborative is a core group of local public and private funding and policy leaders, including the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, Weingart Foundation, LA County Departments of Mental Health & Health Services, Housing Authority of the City of LA, Veterans Administration of Greater LA and many more (listed below). In its third year of funding, permanent supportive housing and systematic solutions to homelessness in LA, major public and private funders came together this year to coordinate a record $213 million to support 24 organizations and expand regional efforts around Coordinated Entry System (CES). As Steve Hilton, President & CEO of the Hilton Foundation stated, "We believe the implementation of the Coordinated Entry System throughout the county will have a dramatic and rapid impact on chronic and veteran homelessness in every corner of the L.A. region." Coordinated Entry System began last year in Skid Row with a community-led pilot with support from Community Solutions and Rapid Results Institute, and grew to 7 communities throughout the county incorporating over 60 organizations in the last year. The Collaborative's support will help this community-designed and policy-supported system of change, continue to expand to include all areas of LA county and all populations in need of housing and supportive services.

Additionally, the grants of the Funders Collaborative will ensure that 1,400 new individuals are permanently housed with all of the support services they need to be successful. These housing opportunities will offer support for up to 15 years of housing and support for those who need it most.
