In the wake of the Great Recession of 2008, homelessness in North Hollywood started to climb.  Between 2013 and 2015, the number of homeless residents in North Hollywood increased more than 100%.   Since 2015, as measured by the now annual LA homeless count, the number of counted homeless has fluctuated from 811 in 2015, to 736 in 2016, to 791 in the most recent count in January 2017.  More than half of the homeless in North Hollywood (446) live in vehicles—cars, vans and RV’s.

  • What are we doing to address homelessness in NoHo?

  • We run a drop-in program for homeless persons on our campus where they can get off the streets, get basic medical care, hygiene, clothing, hot meals and case management by a licensed social worker.

  • We run a pilot jobs training program that provides mentoring, screening and job search assistance.

  • We advocate to identify permanent housing for homeless persons eligible for housing vouchers. 

  • We form relationships with homeless persons and area service providers so that we can effectively screen and refer homeless persons for transitional housing opportunities.

  • We partner with other homeless services organizations to bring additional services such as critical immunizations and emergency supplies to build a healthier community.
