The Home For Good Initiative is a county-wide effort that includes over 200 partners (representing government agencies, foundations, and service providers) working collaboratively on solutions to end homelessness in Los Angeles County. The initiative was launched in 2010 by the Business Leader’s Task Force on Homelessness, a partnership of the United Way of Greater Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce.
The Home For Good Funders Collaborative was seeded by a $1 million challenge grant from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation to the United Way in 2011. The Funders Collaborative provides a common table for the leading policymakers and funders working on ending homelessness in LA County to navigate and develop strategies, test ideas, and coordinate efforts. The Collaborative is above all a line of sight to emerging opportunities in private and public funding, where resources are discussed, allocated, and aligned. From 2012-2016, the Collaborative aligned over $1 billion in private philanthropic and public resources toward permanent solutions to homelessness.
