Homelessness Committee

In working with our stakeholders the TNC Homelessness Committee is committed to serving the homeless/unhoused in our community as well as neighboring communities by: connecting the homeless to Los Angeles Housing Services Authority (LAHSA) and other LA county services. We also work with the CD 3 Homelessness BOBCATS in bringing solutions to the unsheltered and homeless.

Agenda Requests

The Homelessness Committee conducts its business by reviewing and prioritizing agenda requests for Board action (generally either in the form of a motion or letter) or announcements submitted by stakeholders, governmental entities and other interested individuals and organizations. Homelessness Committee Committee has the discretion to postpone a request, refer it to a specific committee for review and recommendation, treat it as an announcement or consider and resolve it as a non-Board administrative matter.
