LA-HOP (Los Angeles County Homeless Outreach Portal)
LA-HOP is designed to assist people experiencing homelessness in LA County with outreach services

WHEN SHOULD I FILL OUT AN OUTREACH REQUEST?
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 well-being. As outreach capacity is limited, requests for those with more serious medical and/or mental health needs may be prioritized.
WHEN SHOULD I NOT FILL OUT AN OUTREACH REQUEST?
If you come across a family with minor children experiencing homelessness, have them call 211 and ask to be connected to the Coordinated Entry System for Families. If you are concerned about illegal activity, contact your local law enforcement agency. For medical and mental health emergencies, call 911. Unfortunately, outreach teams are not able to serve individuals who are couch surfing, temporarily living with friends or family, at risk of homelessness, or already staying in a homeless shelter. As outreach teams focus on street-based services, they cannot perform in-reach to facilities.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE A TEAM TO RESPOND?
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 LA County, the need for outreach services is great.
