Mayor's Office of City Homelessness Initiatives

The Mayor's Office of City Homelessness Initiatives (MOCHI) oversees the Mayor's strategy to solve homelessness and housing instability in Los Angeles. The office directs the City's street strategy to address encampments, the development of interim housing citywide through the "A Bridge Home" program, and the production and preservation of affordable and supportive housing for Angelenos who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, including oversight of the Prop. HHH program. MOCHI guides the regional planning efforts alongside our County and State partners on effective homelessness interventions, including in Skid Row, the epicenter of our crisis. 

Finally, the team collaborates with other Mayoral staff and City Departments to advance a comprehensive agenda to create a sustainable and equitable housing market. And MOCHI works in especially close coordination with the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA), the Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), and the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) to ensure that services benefiting the most vulnerable Angelenos are provided efficiently and compassionately.
