In addition to LAFH's own apartment portfolio, we manage a vast network of landlord connections to help program participants find homes.
In 2015, our housing team secured more than 650 apartments for our program participants. Our housing placement team connects participants to the appropriate housing resource for their needs: A homeless veteran surviving on the streets for decades may need an apartment aligned with on-site supportive services, whereas a family experiencing homelessness for the first time due to a job loss can move into a market-rate apartment with rental support until new employment is secured. Another model of housing, bridge housing, provides a temporary place to live while the client works to secure permanent housing.
BRIDGE HOUSING: A temporary housing solution (previously referred to as “shelter” or transitional housing) for individuals and families as they work with case managers to move into permanent housing.
PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING: An apartment linked to on-site supportive services; a proven, cost-effective housing solution for chronically homeless individuals with disabilities.
