This week we would like to highlight the work of the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority. The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) is a joint powers authority of the City and County of Los Angeles, created in 1993 to address the problems of homelessness in Los Angeles County. LAHSA is the lead agency in the HUD-funded Los Angeles Continuum of Care, and coordinates and manages over $70 million annually in federal, state, county and city funds for programs providing shelter, housing and services to homeless persons.
LAHSA’s big event includes the Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count, which PELA will be participating in this Thursday.
Below is the 2012-2013 LAHSA Video Report that depicting the programs and services LAHSA offers.
