Los Angeles County Homeless Outreach Portal (L.A.H.S.A)

Did you see someone experiencing homelessness who needs help? Notice a homeless neighbor who seems to be struggling with their physical and/or mental health? Then you can help them by filling out an outreach request and alert us as to any specific concerns you may have regarding the person’s wellbeing. As outreach capacity is limited, requests for those with more serious medical and/or mental health needs may be prioritized.

Due to high demand, it may take a few days for an outreach team to be deployed and we may need to prioritize those individuals who are most vulnerable. With nearly 40,000 people living on the streets of L.A. County, the need for outreach services is great.
