    washington cash advance payday loans online A couple years ago the San Fernando Valley Homeless Coalition decided to expand its presence in the community by taking a more active role in placing homeless people into permanent supportive housing After learning about the success of Project 50 inLos Angeles Skid Row we knew that the 100k Homes Campaign could give us the opportunity to do just that It wasn t much longer after learning about Project 50 that the Coalition reached out to Community Solutions Common Ground to get some training as to how we could replicate this effort within our own service area Leslie Wise has been an amazing resource for us We knew we had the infrastructure in place to be successful Yet we also knew we had to be strategic and to stay committed My Coalition Co Chair John Horn LA Family Housing and I even attended the July 2010 100k Homes Campaign s official Kick Off in Washington D C during the National Conference on Ending Homelessness Getting involved was easy Shortly after the conference in DC the San Fernando Valley Homeless Coalition was officially enrolled in the 100k Homes Campaign After enrolling we began to receive some additional technical assistance from Common Ground via conference calls and informative webinars on community advocacy and housing placement John and I also attended a Registry Week Boot Camp in Glendale CA during the weekend of April 30 2011 to get a better feel for training volunteers and to learn from past experiences We hit the streets with Glendale s volunteers the following Monday morning and had the opportunity to administer the Vulnerability Index Deciding on which area s to conduct a Registry Week was difficult for our Coalition given that the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys make up close to 1 000 square miles of geography However after giving this much thought and listening to some concerns expressed by the Sun Valley Neighborhood Council our Coalition unanimously decided to have our Registry Week target homeless individuals living in the communities of North Hollywood and Sun Valley payday loans spokane valley washington The San Fernando Valley 100K Homes Registry Week will take place during the week of August 29 2011 We need 70 volunteers to canvas 16 homeless hot spots between North Hollywood and Sun Valley Volunteers can register here Additional information is also available on Facebook We hope you help us make a difference in our community Leave a Reply Cancel reply Send Us Message Full Name Email Address Website Message You may use these HTML tags and attributes a href title abbr title acronym title b blockquote cite cite code del datetime em i q cite s strike strong SEND MESSAGE About H ome For Good is an Action Plan to end chronic and veteran homelessness in L A County by 2016 The plan was launched in December 2010 by the Business Leader s Task Force on Homelessness a partnership of United Way of Greater Los Angeles

    collaboration Los Angeles has set the bar high by aligning public and private funding for permanent supportive housing Coupled with improved targeting and the creation of housing and services to help people thrive Home for Good is well on its way to delivering on its promise As a result of last year s Summit there were six priority recommendations identified for the federal government to support Home for Good s implementation My colleague Barbara Poppe at the U S Interagency Council on Homelessness was proud to share that we have made progress on all six cash advance amite la HUD s Office of Community Planning and Development has also invested substantially to support your success Last December we awarded 86 5 million in homeless assistance to renew funding to hundreds of programs through the four continuums of care in Los Angeles County This is in addition to our robust investments in the HUD Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing program and other mainstream housing and community development initiatives in communities throughout Los Angeles County HUD remains steadfast in our commitment to partner with you to further solutions to homelessness so we may one day welcome all homeless Angelenos home for good Community Care Facilities Ordinance limits shared housing and independent living for seniors February 08 2012 By admin Home for Good Partners David Grunwald is President and CEO of Affordable Living for the Aging During our worst economic downturn since the Great Depression the Los Angeles City Council is poised to adopt a new ordinance that will severely restrict the supply of affordable rental housing and prevent older residents from sharing their homes Under the proposed anti shared housing ordinance homeowners could no longer rent their homes guesthouses or rooms to more than one tenant The new ordinance will also prevent nonprofit service organizations like Affordable Living for the Aging from helping senior clients like Susan Redfern remain in her home of 32 years Susan is an 82 year old widow who owns a three bedroom home in West Hills She uses a walker and increasingly needs assistance with daily tasks Over the past year she has had several bad falls due to instability Susan s savings have been depleted due to unexpected health care costs She came to ALA seeking live in help and renter referrals to offset her living expenses Susan is asking 500 to rent one bedroom and is offering the other bedroom rent free in exchange for assistance with cooking and transportation Under the proposed ordinance Susan and others like her would be unable to consider shared housing as a means for securing financial stability companionship and assistance with daily tasks dash payday loans For over three decades ALA has helped thousands of seniors through our home share match program and shared living residences At one shared living house nine tenants occupy a duplex ALA rehabilitated and now manages Each tenant has a private bedroom and bathroom and shares common space Tenants have individual lease agreements with ALA Shared housing keeps housing costs low while also offering tenants the option of socialization with fellow housemates The demand for affordable housing alternatives like shared housing is only going to increase as Baby Boomers retire By 2030 it is estimated that as many as three million Southern Californians will exceed the age of 60 doubling the current population Up to half of these seniors will live on modest fixed incomes like social security and be unable to sustain high mortgage or rent payments after they retire shared housing may be their only realistic option The current economic crisis warrants creative solutions to meeting our basic needs not restrictive mandates that limit our options Seniors share housing to find companionship offset housing costs or receive assistance with daily tasks while remaining safe in their own home Shared housing promotes socially sustainable communities by compelling people to collaborate to solve problems And it provides additional needed resources to homeowners seeking to supplement their income during rough economic times Rather than limiting seniors options we encourage the City Council to rethink its anti shared housing proposal The City should encourage shared housing not prevent it To voice your opposition to the Community Care Facilities Ordinance please contact your District Representative For a list of Los Angeles Councilmembers click HERE Community Care Facilities Ordinance threatens Permanent Supportive Housing in the City of Los Angeles February 07 2012 By admin Home for Good Partners Greg Spiegel is Director of Policy and Communications at Inner City Law Center There is a proposed ordinance before the planning subcommittee of the Los Angeles City Council that would devastate affordable housing for people with disabilities and low income families The innocuous sounding Community Care Facilities Ordinance is a Jekyl and Hyde bill that gives with one hand and takes away with the other Half of the ordinance would put the City in conformance with state laws promoting housing for people with disabilities while the other half eliminates similar housing for people with disabilities and working poor families Specifically the ordinance requires that in a neighborhood zoned for single family homes and duplexes a home can have only one lease If a home has two or more leases such as where two families are sharing or where a person with disabilities is living in shared housing the ordinance would categorize the home as a boarding house Under current law boarding houses are prohibited in residential zones Thus by categorizing all homes with multiple leases as boarding houses the ordinance would eliminate shared housing in these residential zones The elimination of shared housing in residential zones would fall most heavily on people with disabilities for whom shared housing provides the best and most prevalent opportunity to live independently Over 250 units of government subsidized shared housing for people with disabilities would be eliminated under this proposal By requiring that they be on only one lease the ordinance either eliminates the housing federal programs require separate leases for shared housing or requires
