We Are Los Angeles

WE ARE LOS ANGELES is a movement of community-based organizations in Angeleno communities coming together because we believe that everyone should have an affordable, safe, and healthy, place to call home whether we rent or own. We Are Los Angeles is sponsored by the Mayor’s Fund For Los Angeles to prevent Angelenos like you and your loved ones from becoming homeless.

Stay In Your Home! Here’s Help

We Are Los Angeles can connect you to a Promotora or Resource Navigator from Esperanza Community Housing who is trained in assisting Los Angeles City residents with signing up for all available programs, social and legal services for which they are eligible. Not only will we schedule an appointment with you to determine what support and services apply but we will also help you sign up for them. Furthermore, Promotoras will connect you to legal assistance to the extent it is available if you are in danger of eviction.
