SUMMARY OF CORE VALUES
LA Family Housing (LAFH) helps people transition out of homelessness and poverty by providing a continuum of housing enriched with supportive services. Our model is based on an individualized approach to meet each program participant’s unique needs.
This model connects participants to permanent housing and helps them achieve long-term housing stability through a full continuum of services. Through our outreach & assessment process, LAFH connects participants with housing placement combined with supportive services to help thousands of people transition out of homelessness and retain long-term housing stability. We increase our impact through community partnerships and real estate development, supported by financial sustainability.
We base all of our work on four core values; DIGNITY, PERSERVERENCE, COLLABORATION, and LEADERSHIP. Everything we do is connected to one or more of these four values and is reflected in the job duties of each staff position.
