Summer 2019

This spring was a time of great celebration and reflection. On May 30, we celebrated the Grand Opening of the Irmas Family Campus at LA Family Housing. Our Campus was financed through a $56 million campaign, with over $24 million raised from private philanthropy and over $31 million from Federal, County, and City resources. The success of our Campaign shows what can happen when we work together to play a part in ending homelessness in people’s lives. The generous support of our Campaign donors will allow us to maximize our impact and serve even more individuals and families in need.


Winter 2018

Thank you for making 2018 an incredible year! With your support, we were able to serve nearly 7,500 participants and reach some truly transformational milestones:

• Engaged 155 volunteers to help 49 formerly homeless individuals move into their new home at The Fiesta apartments;

• Broke ground on Ormond Beach to provide 40 families with new supportive housing;

• Received a real estate gift to be used as housing for veterans.


Summer 2018

The 2018 Point-In-Time Homeless
Count shows that Los Angeles has
successfully stabilized the size of the
homeless population across the region.
But the number of people experiencing
homelessness is still far too great and
our work is needed more than ever.

Winter 2018

After years of planning and months of
construction, contracts, and late nights,
I am ecstatic to share that our newest
permanent supportive housing is
complete and 49 people moved home
into The Fiesta apartments.

LA Family Housing has always recognized
that it takes multiple strategies to end
homelessness in people’s lives. One of the
most important lessons we’ve learned
during the past 30 years, is that when we
apply focus and resources to a problem,
we will inevitably see results.

Winter 2017

The numbers are big: 46,874 people
experiencing the crisis of homelessness in Los Angeles County.

But numbers don’t tell the full story.

Behind every number is a person who has been impacted by of homelessness in LA.

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.

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.”

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.
