FALL 2016

We have so much to be thankful for—especially you. 

Whether you played in our golf tournament, enjoyed Room & Board’s Art & Home event, carved pumpkins at our Harvest Festival, or advocated with us to pass Proposition HHH, it’s been a wonderfully full fall season.

SUMMER 2016

A child’s bike. A welcome mat. A
patch of grass for a puppy. I saw all
of these things outside an RV parked
on Laurel Canyon one January night
during the LA Homeless Count. All of
the signs of a family’s home, but they
were still among the 46,874 people
experiencing homelessness in LA.

In early June we broke ground on
The Campus at LA Family Housing—a
housing and supportive services hub
for the region that Mayor Garcetti has
praised as “a gold standard.”

WINTER 2016

Thirty years ago, a group of local leaders saw a growing crisis of homeless families in the San Fernando Valley, and they made it their mission to help. Together they purchased the old Fiesta Motel on Lankershim Boulevard in North Hollywood and gave 40 families a new beginning.  That motel became Valley Shelter, the first crisis housing in the area and a key foundation to what became LA Family Housing (LAFH).

FALL 2015

Tonight, most of us know where we’ll rest our heads. We have pillows on our beds, and we can sleep soundly in our homes. For so many of LA Family Housing’s clients, this isn’t the case. Two years ago, we were seeing 10-15 families walk through our doors for help each month; this year, we’ve seen up to 50 homeless families each month. And with our expanded outreach program, our case managers are also seeing an increase in homeless individuals on the streets.

The need is greater. But the solutions are in sight, and we’re making a real impact. Thank you for joining us in action and support every day.
