Today Home For Good released its second quarterly report. We are so grateful to everyone that is helping with the implementation of Home For Good. It is through your hard work that we are making great progress. Three highlights from this report include:
1. We are half way into Home For Good’s first year, and 46% to the Year One goal for housing chronically homeless individuals, and 43% to the goal for housing homeless veterans. This is our most important measure of progress!
2. On April 19th, the L.A. County Board of Supervisors, in an historic 5-0 vote, moved to align County’s efforts with Home For Good’s goals. Among other critical changes, the County will explore its ability to provide supportive services in housing for chronically homeless individuals, which could create significantly more permanent supportive housing in our region.
3. Non-profit providers are dedicating new and turnover permanent supportive housing units to chronically homeless individuals and encouraging scattered site landlords to house the most vulnerable chronically homeless individuals in their units. As you’ll see in the report, scattered-site and turnover units account for most of the permanent housing placements, so its imperative that these are prioritized to the most vulnerable chronically homeless individuals.
