HOMELESSNESS IN WEST HOLLYWOOD
The West Hollywood Homeless Initiative seeks to effectively address homelessness with a multi-disciplinary, multi-agency, collaborative response. This effort is led primarily by three key Departments at West Hollywood City Hall — Human Services & Rent Stabilization; Public Safety; and Economic Development.
In September 2016, the West Hollywood City Council approved Guiding Principles for the City’s response to homelessness and formed a City Council subcommittee to address these issues.
West Hollywood participated in the development of the Los Angeles County Homeless Initiative’s 47 Strategies to Combat Homelessness, and supported Measure H, the Los Angeles County quarter-cent sales tax measure approved by County voters in March 2017 to raise funds for homeless services throughout LA County.
The West Hollywood Homeless Initiative also successfully launched a program at the West Hollywood Library, offering on-site service delivery for community members experiencing homelessness. This is a strategic collaboration between the City, the County Library and the City’s contracted social services providers. Outreach and services are offered Monday through Friday by teams from Ascencia, Step Up on Second, the LA LGBT Center’s Youth Center, A Safe Refuge, Tarzana Treatment Centers, Friends Community Center and the LA LGBT Center’s Mental Health Services. More information about the services and schedule at the Library is available here.
