About Us

Home For Good

Home For Good is a community-driven initiative to end homelessness in L.A. County, starting with chronically homeless individuals and veterans. The initiative was launched in December 2010 by the Business Leader’s Task Force on Homelessness, a partnership of United Way of Greater Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce. It has since grown into a countywide effort that represents 200+ cross-sector partners working collaboratively on systems and solutions to end homelessness.

Our Team

"Our community came together around the Home For Good vision of making Los Angeles a place where no one is forgotten, no one worries about having a warm, safe place of their own to sleep each night. We still have much work ahead of us, but I have no doubt that we will continue to lead the way for Los Angeles and for the nation by coming together to ensure we are all home for good." - Christine Margiotta, VP of Community Investment

Business Leader Task Force

The Home For Good Business Leaders Task Force was formed in 2010 by the United Way of Greater Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce, committing the business community’s resources and expertise to ensure the success of the plan to end chronic and veteran homelessness. Their support and advocacy have been instrumental to the formation of Home For Good’s key initiatives and the progress of the work to date.
