The Home For Good Year Three, Quarter One report is out!
There is much to celebrate this past quarter, which saw many firsts in Los Angeles’ efforts to address homelessness. We started off the beginning of year with the largest and most comprehensive Homeless Count in the history of LA County, with 5,000 volunteers counting and surveying homeless individuals throughout the region. Also, for the first time in the history of the City of Los Angeles, the city allocated General Funds specifically for supportive housing. LA City Council and Mayor Villaraigosa voted to designate $18 million in city funds for the construction of new housing projects. On March 21st, in collaboration with Shelter Partnership, CSH, Center for Urban Community Services (CUCS), and Housing Innovations, Home For Good held the very first Standards of Excellence (SoE) Symposium. Nearly 100 stakeholders were in attendance to learn about the SoE and next steps. The first quarter of year three ended with new beginnings for over 800 of our formerly homeless neighbors who moved into permanent housing.
We look forward to sharing the many successes to come this next quarter! Keep an eye out for updates on our Skid Row Coordinated Entry Project and an announcement of the new Home For Good Grantees under the second Funders Collaborative RFP.
