Shared Family Interim Housing
- Field of Interest:
- Addressing Homelessness in Los Angeles, Social Services
Founded in 1983, LA Family Housing (LAFH) helps families transition out of homelessness and poverty through a continuum of housing and supportive services. Its primary activities include engagement and outreach, permanent and interim housing, supportive services to help families stay housed, and real estate development. LAFH operates 31 affordable housing properties throughout Los Angeles County. Over the last three years LAFH has more than doubled the number of individuals it services annually from over 5,200 in 2015 to nearly 11,000 in 2018.
The Shared Family Interim Housing project will renovate and open three large single-family homes in residential areas that will provide shared interim housing for families experiencing homelessness, and will lead to a new and innovative model for housing an increasing number of families experiencing homelessness.
