A Holistic Approach to


Better Angels - Holistic Approach - Prevention, Services, Shelter, Housing, and Technology

Better Angels is taking a bold, holistic approach to tackling the homeless epidemic in Los Angeles. We are harnessing new models of intervention, community engagement, advocacy, world-class technology, and a strong dose of pragmatism across five critical areas of need: Prevention, Sanitation, Services, Shelter and Housing.

Because homelessness in LA is a multidimensional problem, it requires a holistic response. You have to deal with sanitation for the unhoused population and the local residents. You have to treat people with the services they need to get them off the street. You have to find shelter for the largest unsheltered population in the nation. You have to create more affordable housing for those without permanent homes in one of the most expensive real estate markets in the world. And even if you do all of that, you have to prevent so many new people from becoming unhoused in the first place.
