The Unseen in the Housing Crisis: How Philanthropy Can Help Families with Young Children Find Permanent, Stable Homes
April 19 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Los Angeles is, unarguably, the epicenter of the nation’s housing and homelessness crisis. The number of people without shelter has nearly doubled during the past decade – to roughly 42,000 in the City and nearly 70,000 across Los Angeles County.
Billions in public funding have been set aside locally to address this issue, and in February the federal government directed $60 million in grants to help unsheltered people. As her first action as Mayor of Los Angeles, Karen Bass declared a state of emergency on homelessness.
Often missing in discussions about this issue are the families with young children struggling to find a permanent home. And yet they account for approximately 25% of the County’s unhoused population and face distinct challenges with no centralized, easily accessible resource to provide assistance.
The LA Partnership for Early Childhood Investment invites you to join us as we turn much-needed attention to these families.
Please hold April 19th from 10 a.m. to noon for this important discussion about what solutions exist, how philanthropy can catalyze public dollars and what steps the Partnership and the Center for Strategic Partnerships are taking to strengthen supports for these families.
