The Home L.A. Loan Fund

Every night, nearly 50,000 Angelenos go to sleep homeless, enough to fill Dodger Stadium. The California Community Foundation is working with partners to build 10,000 housing units over ten years for our neighbors in need.

We invite donors who are passionate about homelessness to become charter investors in the Home L.A. Loan Fund, a one-of-a-kind, risk-free charitable investment option. Investments provide three- or five-year seed capital to organizations building permanent supportive housing units for the chronically homeless, accelerating the pace and scale of production while creating more homes for those who need them.
