Donations from the event will directly benefit a city-wide challenge hosted by the United Way of Greater Los Angeles to develop a "coordinated entry system" (CES) in LA. A CES means that the most vulnerable adults are placed into housing in the least amount of time, prioritizing our neighbors who are most likely to die on the streets for available housing. The Q&A session will touch upon how a CES will impact homelessness in the City of Los Angeles.

This event is open to the public, and we encourage anyone who is interested in learning more about LA's homeless and housing initiatives to participate!

Panelists include:
Cristine Marge, Director of Housing & Financial Stability, United Way of Greater Los Angeles
Martin Schlageter, Policy Director for Councilman Jose Huizar
Becky Kanis, Director of 100K Homes Campaign/Community Solutions
Molly Rysman, Los Angeles Director, Corporation for Supportive Housing
Donna Gallup, Chief Executive Officer, Lamp Community
