2023 meetings will be held every ODD month on the 3rd Thursday from 2:00pm - 3:30pm

2023 Goals

Affordable and stable housing is one of the most critical needs for those who are reentering society after incarceration, and the Housing Committee is committed to advocating for policies and programs that support and uplift those who are impacted by the criminal legal system. In 2023 we are working to:


  • Increase access to housing: We will work to expand access to affordable and stable housing options for individuals with justice involvement, including advocating for more supportive housing options and affordable rent.
  • Address housing discrimination: Our committee will work to address housing discrimination faced by people with criminal records by advocating for policies and practices that prohibit discrimination based on criminal records and promoting policies that create pathways for individuals with records to access housing. Starting with advocating for a BOS Motion for Fair Chance Housing Ordinance for LA County. 
  • Expand housing resources: We will work to expand resources available to individuals with justice involvement to help them navigate the housing process, including resources for housing searches, financial assistance, and housing stability.
  • Foster community partnerships: Our committee will seek out and develop partnerships with community-based organizations, housing providers, and other stakeholders to identify and implement solutions that can help address the housing needs of those impacted by the criminal legal system.

Resources on Immigration Enforcement

The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) affirms the right of all individuals experiencing homelessness in the Los Angeles Continuum of Care (LA CoC) to access services and housing for which they are eligible by promoting welcoming, non-discriminatory environments that protect client privacy and safety. As a reminder, the resources below are available to help inform and prepare your organization as it relates to homelessness and immigration enforcement.

This is not legal advice. Please seek legal counsel if your organization would like a more detailed understanding of federal immigration policies and how they affect your work and clients.
Also, it is crucial that LAHSA, along with our City and County partners remain informed and in tune with our communities. Should your facilities experience, or should you witness, federal immigration enforcement activities, immediately report such actions to Paul Duncan, pduncan@lahsa.org, LAHSA’s Director of Procurement and Performance Management.
