About LA Family Housing

Location:

7843 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood, CA 91605, US

Mission Statement

LA Family Housing helps people transition out of homelessness and poverty through a continuum of housing enriched with supportive services.

Description

In 1983, an interfaith group of leaders from the San Fernando Valley noticed a sharp increase in the rise of families experiencing homelessness in their neighborhood. Desperate to help, they gathered local support and raised funds to purchase a 40-unit motel - The Fiesta Motel - in North Hollywood.

There, families could benefit from a safe, warm place to stay for a maximum of 30 days while they regained their footing and worked on long-term solutions. The motel would later become LA Family Housing's "Valley Shelter".

Soon, these leaders recognized that multiple strategies to end homelessness were necessary to help more families. They began working with a South L.A.-based developer who was building small, permanently affordable apartment buildings in Southeast L.A. In 1988 the two groups merged. Their combined experience in temporary and permanent housing created a continuum of housing for families experiencing homelessness, and this partnership became what is now LA Family Housing (LAFH).

Over the last 35 years, LAFH has grown to become one of the largest providers of housing and homeless services in Los Angeles, now serving 11,000+ people annually.
