Description: The Homeless Family Solutions System (HFSS) is a coordinated, regionally-based and community driven system implemented in Service Planning Area (SPA) 6 of South Los Angeles by the Weingart Center for the Homeless.  The HFSS utilizes an integrated network of providers, including SHIELDS, to provide a coordinated housing and services plan in order to streamline service delivery, minimize barriers to obtaining and maintaining permanent housing, and ultimately reduce the length of homelessness experienced by families living in Los Angeles County.

The target population of the HFSS is homeless individuals and families residing in South Los Angeles.

nder the coordinated systems approach to addressing family homelessness, the Weingart Center, SHIELDS and partners provide: 1) a screening, triage and standardized assessment process at system entry and; 2) integrated and linked program components that provide crisis, rapid rehousing, and permanent housing opportunities based on evidence-based practices including housing first, harm reduction and progressive engagement strategies.
SHIELDS staff are co-located at the Weingart Center for the Homeless to screen individuals and families who may be in need of mental health services. SHIELDS provides linkage and referral services and works closely with Center staff to expedite appointments for mental health services. Additional supportive services for eligible clients include child care, behavioral health including mental health and substance abuse treatment, educational and vocational services, primary health, legal services, and domestic violence services.
