Los Angeles County’s Pathway Home program found interim housing for 60 people experiencing homelessness in Signal Hill and Long Beach, where they will receive supportive services and other resources to help them transition out of homelessness and into permanent housing.

“Pathway Home is not just about providing shelter; it’s about offering a new beginning and a real chance for a stable, self-sufficient life for our homeless residents,” said Signal Hill Mayor Lori Woods. “We are happy to support this partnership which aligns with the City’s commitment to address homelessness with compassionate and sustainable long-term solutions; it also demonstrates the power of collaboration in tackling significant social challenges.”

Pathway Home is an encampment resolution program that utilizes emergency powers and partnerships with local jurisdictions to get people off the streets into immediately available interim housing and, ultimately, into permanent homes

Working with both cities, the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) and nonprofit service provider PATH led outreach efforts.

“This partnership is a testament to what we can achieve when we work together towards a common goal of ending homelessness in our community,” said Signal Hill city manager Carlo Tomaino.
