Beyond Shelter - Homeless Services
Provides a variety of support services for homeless and low-income families in Los Angeles County. Services are targeted, but not restricted, to families with children age 18 and younger. Services include case management, housing services and technical assistance. Geographic restrictions apply for some services.
The agency's "Housing First" Program provides assistance to homeless families. Referrals are not accepted for this program; participants are referred through affiliated agencies only. Referring agencies include emergency shelters, transitional housing programs, substance abuse treatment programs, domestic violence programs and a variety of community based social services agencies. In the Housing First program families receive time-limited, home-based case management after they have moved into rental units.
Case management services include family and individual counseling; crisis intervention; job counseling, training and placement; money management assistance; parenting education; assistance in obtaining child care; access to basic health and mental health care; welfare advocacy; independent living skills training; and specialized children's services.
Technical assistance is available for individuals and organizations through regional and national workshops, agency consultation and staff training and publications.
A referral from an affiliated agency is required for case management and the Housing First program. Referring agencies call to discuss referrals with staff.
Call for information Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm.
