Lamp Community

Los Angeles, CA
December 2012

According to the 2011 Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority’s homeless count, there are an estimated 11,571 homeless individuals in downtown Los Angeles sleeping in shelters, missions and on the streets nightly. More than 50% live with mental illness, physical disabilities or chronic health conditions. The goal of the Downtown Pathway Home initiative is to end chronic homelessness in Skid Row by housing 450 of the most vulnerable homeless individuals by July 2013 and a total of 1,531 individuals by July 2015. To achieve this goal, LAMP Community is working with other Skid Row homeless services providers to reduce duplication, link the most vulnerable to immediate services and increase permanent housing placements.
