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. It is responsible for funding and coordination of homeless services and housing assistance to support the homeless population of men, women and children in the City and County of Los Angeles.
Since 2005, LAHSA has coordinated six biennial Greater Los Angeles Homeless Counts. Beginning 2016, the Point-In-Time Count occurs annually. For more information visit www.lahsa.org.
Our solutions are only as good as our information. The more informed we are allows us to understand and solve issues at a greater rate. The Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count is where we gather as much information as possible of those experiencing homelessness so that we can make informed decisions and creative solutions. It enables us to gather important data that is key for us to bring about an end to homelessness in Los Angeles.
Through the Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count, we will:
Inform the state of homelessness in LA
Bring vital community resources
Increase engagement bringing together leaders, residents and stakeholders
