At LAFH, we believe that ending homelessness in people’s lives requires the collaboration of many community partners.

As the lead agency for the coordinated entry systems for both families and single adults in our region, LAFH manages a deep network of partners—including other housing and social services agencies, government entities, landlords and real estate partners, and community and faith-based organizations. Together, we connect homeless families and single adults to a full range of services and housing options, coordinating what can otherwise be an overwhelming process of seeking help. LAFH also relies on the generosity of volunteers—whether students or corporate groups, hands-on service, or behind-the-scenes administrative support. It takes the community coming together to help end homelessness for good.

Los Angeles County is divided into eight geographic areas designated as Service Planning Areas (SPA).

LAFH is the lead agency in SPA 2, which represents approximately 1,122 square miles and 7,094 homeless persons on any given night.
