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? You can help them by filling out an outreach request at www.la-hop.org.
If you are concerned about illegal activity, contact law enforcement. For all non-emergencies, call 1-877-ASK-LAPD or 911 for medical and mental health emergencies or when the individual appears to be a danger to themselves or others.
For encampments, download the MyLA311 app to make a service request, or call 311. Encourage your neighbors to file the same request.
If you have taken these steps and the issue has not been resolved, please contact your LAPD – Senior Lead Officer (click here for Wilshire Division, click here for Olympic Division, or click here for Hollywood Division, which serves the easternmost two blocks of GWNC Area 8) – and your Field Deputy at your Council District office.
Your SLO and Field Deputy can work together to help deploy HOPE – Homeless Outreach Proactive & Empowerment – with the Dept. of Sanitation. In October 2019 CARE teams will be deployed by Council District. The City will no longer rely solely on a case-by-case, complaint-driven model for cleanups. Instead, neighborhood-based comprehensive Cleaning And Rapid Engagement teams will use data-driven tools to provide public health services to encampments, identify areas of highest need, and ensure the hardest hit areas receive regularly scheduled cleanups and hygiene services.
All will be coordinated downtown by the Mayor’s new UHRC – Unified Homeless Response Center.
