Elevating Authentic Voices to End Homelessness
Ending homelessness requires dispelling myths about the causes and experience of homelessness and building support for equitable policy solutions. Changing public perception can only be achieved by ensuring those who have experienced homelessness have equitable access to opportunities to have their voices heard, educating the public, and impacting policy. Union Station will train and support people with lived experience to lead community engagement and discussion to create momentum for change.

Union Station Homeless Services: Championing the Lived Experience to connect with community and advocate for change
Ending homelessness in LA County requires effective community engagement to educate people and dispel myths in order to build support for systemic change and equitable policy solutions. Union Station’s Lived Expertise Advisory Panel (LEAP) amplifies the voices of people who have experienced homelessness in an advisory capacity on policy and program planning. With LA2050 funds, we will provide training and civic participation opportunities to LEAP members and launch a texting campaign to educate and engage others in advocating for change.

Union Station Homeless Services Community Allies Program
The Community Allies Program was launched in response to the isolation and loneliness reported by families and individuals we served as they settled into their new homes. The program seeks to increase housing retention rates, improve community connection, and foster community integration of currently homeless families and individuals in bridge-housing and those that are formerly homeless in permanent supportive housing by providing social and recreational activities and pairing individuals with a supportive community volunteer ally.
