How to help homeless Angelenos

"No one can do everything to solve homelessness, but everyone can do something." — Mayor Eric Garcetti

Homelessness is the greatest moral and humanitarian crisis of our time — but by working together, we can put an end to this crisis, and bring our neighbors indoors. You can be a part of the solution. Here are some of the ways you can lend a hand to Angelenos in need:



LA Homeless Outreach Portal

LA HOP: Los Angeles County Homeless Outreach Portal

You can connect homeless Angelenos in your neighborhood with the support and services they need to start a new chapter. Measure H dollars are at work — expanding outreach teams by hiring hundreds of new workers who are delivering help to the streets. LA-HOP is a new online portal that allows Angelenos to pinpoint the location of their homeless neighbors — so that outreach workers can meet them where they are. Read more at la-hop.org.

VolunteerLA

Our VolunteerLA portal connects Angelenos with meaningful opportunities to make a difference in our communities. You can give your time, talent, and energy to projects that can change--even save--lives. Many of the VolunteerLA projects assist Angelenos struggling with homelessness or transitioning into new homes — including serving hot meals to homeless veterans, tutoring homeless students, distributing hygiene supplies to people living on the streets, mentoring families moving into housing, and more.

Go to Volunteer.LAMayor.org to sign up to volunteer or join our mailing list so we can keep you informed about service opportunities across our city.

Everyone In campaign launch

Everyone In

Everyone In is a campaign powered by the United Way of Greater L.A. that brings together a coalition of nonprofit organizations, businesses, labor and community leaders, and everyday Angelenos to deliver on the promise of Measure H and Proposition HHH. The ballot initiatives were passed by voters in 2016 and 2017 to end homelessness by creating thousands of units of supportive housing across L.A., and delivering anti-addiction, housing, and mental health services that will help Angelenos stay off the streets for good. Visit EveryoneInLA.org to join the coalition and champion supportive housing in your community.
