In 2008, representatives of the Hollywood business community, in conjunction with local government officials, service providers, neighborhood representatives, and the faith community began meeting on a monthly basis to discuss a shared commitment to ending homelessness.
Over time, the coalition has tackled pressing issues as the situation continues to deteriorate. The challenges are plentiful, but the passion to continue to fight for real change is stronger than ever.
Our initial funding is provided by Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center, Hudson Pacific, and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.
