Help With the 2011 Homeless Count!

Every two years, the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) conducts the Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count, as part of its mission “to support, create and sustain solutions to homelessness in the City & County of Los Angeles by providing leadership, advocacy, planning and management of program funding.”

LAHSA is the lead agency in the Los Angeles Continuum of Care and coordinates and manages approximately $74 million annually in federal, state, county and city funds for programs providing shelter, housing and services to homeless persons in the City & County of Los Angeles. They provide funding, program design, outcomes assessment and technical assistance to nearly 265 homeless services programs at nearly 100 non-profit partner agencies operating in the City & County of Los Angeles.

The count is a vital part of LAHSA’s services, which in turn benefit the guests of Union Rescue Mission. If you would like to help with the Count, please go to . You can sign up with the URM Team by following these easy steps:
