L.A. Homeless Groups To Get $214M To Improve Housing Process for Individuals With Chronic, Mental Illnesses
On Tuesday, the United Way's "Home For Good" announced that it will distribute about $214 million to 24 homeless agencies and not-for-profits in Los Angeles to bolster services and improve housing allotments for individuals with medical or mental illnesses. United Way officials said the housing system currently leaves out those with medical or mental health conditions but the funding will help to house 1,400 homeless residents and expand a tracking and placement system to reduce disparities in housing in Los Angeles County.
