LA Family Housing
LAFH is on the frontline addressing the COVID-19 crisis within the homelessness community. It has partnered with LA County on Project Roomkey, an initiative to open vacant hotels and motels as housing for people experiencing homelessness who are over 65 or have underlying health conditions. In the past two months, LAFH has opened four motels as housing for 450 people who were previously living on the street. In addition, LAFH operates several shelters and housing facilities, in which it has heightened sanitation measures. It connects with people experiencing homelessness through street-based outreach and engagement, providing hygiene and protective supplies to unsheltered residents and connecting them with local health providers to receive testing and treatment. LAFH also partners with World Central Kitchen to deliver 1,300 hot meals per day to over 500 families in interim housing, and individuals in its permanent supportive housing who are unable to safely purchase meals on their own.
