Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority
Los Angeles Homeless Service Authority (LAHSA) is pioneering county-wide support and implementation of animal-friendly policies in its shelter system, including formalized processes in data collection, training, and funding for animal accommodations. My Dog Is My Home applauds LAHSA's initiatives to make sure people experiencing homelessness with companion animals have equal access to shelter and housing. We stay in communication with LAHSA about their data collection, and we promote their activities and use them as models for providers across the country. Through this shared effort, My Dog Is My Home and LAHSA contribute to the national movement to encourage co-sheltering.
Latest News: In April 2017, LAHSA announced that they would be providing grants of up to $15,000 for crisis and bridge housing providers for successful applicants of their Request for Bids. My Dog Is My Home will be providing training for LAHSA's grantees.
