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.
