BECOME A PART OF THE SOLUTION
1.) mAKE AN OUTREACH REQUEST
L.A. County Homeless Outreach Portal (LA-HOP) is designed to assist people experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles County with outreach services. This is a new tool to help provide services to vulnerable residents living on the street and it makes it easier and more efficient for the public to request help and have it dispatched to connect homeless persons with outreach workers. LA-HOP is designed to advance efforts to help people move from homelessness to housing by activating the general public to become part of the solution. To make a request, visit https://www.lahsa.org/portal/apps/la-hop/request.
2.) interact with people experiencing homelessness USING THE dEEPER STRATEGY
The DEEPeR strategy (Determine Situation, Effective Engagement, Problem Solving, and Resolution) provides a set of tools that empower community members to have safer, more effective interactions with people experiencing homelessness. The DEEPeR Overview video below introduces this strategy, which can be applied to any encounter with someone you do not know.
