LA Family Housing Corporation (LAFH) is redeveloping its main site in North Hollywood in direct response to a historically disjointed safety-net system in Los Angeles County and the growing demand for services from the chronically homeless, homeless and low-income families and individuals.  This Keck award will support construction.  The new Campus will be an 80,000-square-foot service home for Los Angeles County’s Service Planning Area 2 (SPA 2).  LAFH is the lead agency for SPA 2’s recently implemented Coordinated Entry System and the Homeless Families Solutions System.  In one inviting location, individuals and families will access comprehensive housing and supportive services, including primary and dental care, mental health services, employment resources and benefits assistance, case management, legal aid, tutoring and educational resources, recovery support and more.  The Campus will also provide temporary housing for more than 450 homeless households each year, new permanent supportive housing for chronically homeless adults with co-occurring disorders and adequate space for the expanded LAFH staff.  Once the new campus opens in 2018, LAFH anticipates increasing service capacity by 30% to 6,000 individuals annually.
