According to Los Angeles Homeless Service Authority (LAHSA) “The 2016 Greater Los Angeles County found 28,464 homeless persons in the city of Los Angeles, an increase of almost 11% over 2015.” In an effort to take action on the homeless issue in LA County, there has been a coordinated effort among homeless service providers through the Coordinated Entry System (CES) Collaborative. Efforts include wrapping services around the individuals to obtain housing, decrease recidivism and increase rates of retention. There will be a discussion on the effectiveness of the collaboration of Recuperative Care, CES and strategies to improve these efforts.
