HOUSING RESOURCE DIRECTORY (E)
The Housing Resource Directory provides information about emergency shelters, transitional housing, vouchers and low-income/affordable apartments in the greater Los Angeles area.
Emergency Shelter: Any facility with overnight sleeping accommodations, the primary purpose of which is to provide temporary shelter. The length of stay can range from one night up to as much as 3 months.
Transitional Housing: A type of housing for homeless families that allows them to stay for a longer period of time. Transitional housing usually offers services designed to help clients live on their own such as case management, life skills, mental health counseling, and childcare.
Voucher: A voucher generally refers to a Section 8 voucher provided by a local Housing Authority to a low-income person but can also refer to an emergency voucher for short-term motel stay for a homeless person.
Low-income/Affordable Apartments: Affordable housing is typically aimed at low and moderate-income households that are burdened by the high housing costs. There is usually a long wait-list at each apartment complex with low-income units, but it is recommended to sign up for the wait-list.
