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 (CCF) 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.

All Home L.A. loans are guaranteed by CCF. At the conclusion of the loan’s term, 100% of your initial investment is returned to your fund. You can double your impact, using your charitable dollars to fight homelessness now and directing them later to the causes your care about most.

When every Angeleno has access to shelter and the services they need to thrive, we all benefit. By investing in the Home L.A. Loan Fund, we can end this crisis and welcome all our neighbors home.

To learn how you can invest in the Home L.A. Loan Fund, contact Lorene Chandler at lchandler [@] calfund [.] org, by phone at 213-452-6264 or visit calfund.org/HomeLA.

Impact in Action: Kenneth Connor

“It started when my wife got sick. Our insurance didn’t cover her cancer medicine. Her death, coupled with my stroke, left me without a lot of options. Suddenly, I had nowhere to go, and I started sleeping in my car.

“I wound up meeting a lot of others experiencing homelessness in Sunland park. Because I had a car to sleep in, I was one of the lucky ones. So I gave people rides to doctor appointments, social security, things like that. It wasn’t so much a decision as just something I did.

“It was my two angels, Peggy and Josie, who saw me helping people and tried to convince me to apply for affordable housing. I kept saying ‘Don’t worry about me, worry about the others,’ but they finally changed my mind. Thanks to them and L.A. Family Housing, I now have an apartment of my own.

“I love it here. The staff are wonderful. Since coming here, I’m healthier, feeling better than ever, and I’m still helping people out today.”
