What is We Are LA?

We Are LA

  • We Are LA is an initiative of the Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles that focuses on homelessness prevention by connecting residents at risk of eviction with resources that can help them stay in their homes.
  • If you are struggling to pay your rent, you may already qualify for programs that help pay for expenses like food, healthcare, and childcare. In some cases, assistance paying rent or back rent is even available. We Are LA’s trained case workers will help you determine which problems you qualify for and assist you with the application process. We Are LA can connect you to legal clinics, point you to reliable sources of information, and in some cases, get you free legal aid. We Are LA is hosting free tenant resource clinics. Come meet with caseworkers face-to-face, and attend legal and financial planning clinics.
  • We Are LA has engaged with more than 411,000 people. Of this group, more than 30,000 were connected with resources to help them stay housed.
