Los Angeles County Launches Homeless Outreach Portal Online and Through 2-1-1 Phone

la-hop_vectorized

Did you see someone experiencing homelessness who needs help? Notice a homeless neighbor who seems to be struggling with their physical and/or mental health? You can help them by filling out an outreach request at www.la-hop.org or by dialing 2-1-1 and reporting any specific concerns you may have regarding the person’s well-being.

LA-HOP (Homeless Outreach Program) is a service designed to assist people experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles County with outreach services. Calling LA-HOP will dispatch a homeless services outreach team to the area. Homeless individuals or others may call the line when seeking help for themselves or others. This program is funded by Measure H, the County of Los Angeles special sales tax increase passed by the voters in 2017 that specifically funds services, shelter, and permanent rental subsidies for people experiencing homelessness.

211 LA is the central source for providing information and referrals for all health, human services and social services in LA County. The 2-1-1 phone line is open 24 hours, 7 days a week, with trained Community Resource Advisors prepared to offer help with any situation, any time. If you are calling from outside Los Angeles County or cannot directly dial 2-1-1, call (800) 339-6993.

Los Angeles County Declared Disaster Area

20150755b00d8bca86c

Six Southland counties were named disaster areas following damaging floods.

Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom today declared a state of emergency in Los Angeles and five other California counties because of damage from last weekend’s rainstorms.

In the declaration, Newsom wrote that the storms caused flash flooding and mudslides that damaged public and private facilities, forced the evacuation of residents and prompted the opening of emergency shelters.

He pointed in particular to the collapse of Interstate 10 about 50 miles west of the Arizona state line in Riverside County.

He took the action for Los Angeles, San Diego, Riverside, Imperial, Kern and San Bernardino counties because Gov. Jerry Brown is out of the country.

The lieutenant governor also ordered Caltrans to seek emergency funding from the Federal Highway Administration to pay for road repairs.

From County Supervisor Yaroslavsky’s Web Blog.

The candidates are out there, stumping for votes, inundating inboxes, taking to Twitter and Facebook to spread their messages.

No, we’re not talking about a certain upcoming mayoral election—although, like that contest, the outcome of this one could have ramifications for the future of Los Angeles.

This hotly-contested race is called MyLA2050, and the candidates, all 279 of them, are vying for a piece of a $1 million pot that aims to underwrite 10 of the best ideas for changing life here for the better.

It’s crowdsourcing with a conscience. And to scroll through the entries is to peer into the idealistic, entrepreneurial, only-in-L.A. psyche of a metropolis in transition.

Want to support a door-to-door urban composting program?

Underwrite a rolling neighborly Potluck Truck?

Jumpstart an off-the-grid, self-sustainable artists’ habitat called ValhalLA?
