Policy and Planning

Our Approach

The 2017 Greater Los Angeles Point-in-Time Homeless Count revealed that Los Angeles County had more than 57,000 homeless individuals living within its boundaries, the highest figure in the nation. In order to reverse this trend, the homeless services arena needs effective policy, multi-agency collaboration, and a systems change approach. 
Shelter Partnership addresses the root causes of homelessness by creating systems that help people get and stay housed. Shelter Partnership does this by:

  • Working collaboratively to build the capacity of community-based agencies
  • Advocating for resources to increase and strengthen affordable housing and homeless services
  • Providing housing policy analysis and expertise to state and local government 


For over 30 years, Shelter Partnership has worked to establish itself as one of the leaders in the fight to end homelessness in Los Angeles. Shelter Partnership’s recent advocacy efforts achieved some significant results.
