The People Concern was formed in 2016 in a merger of two trusted social services organizations based in Los Angeles County, OPCC (1963) and Lamp Community (1985). Informed by nearly 60 years of work in the community, The People Concern is a leading provider of, and advocate for, evidence-based solutions to the multifaceted challenges inherent in homelessness and domestic violence.
The People Concern’s model of integrated and comprehensive care empowers our participants to navigate the multi-faceted obstacles in their lives, become their best selves, and ultimately, connect with and contribute to their communities. Our programs empower the most vulnerable among us to improve their quality of life – housed, healthy and safe — and become active participants in the community. We also work to educate the broader community and improve public policy. 93% of people placed in permanent housing by The People Concern never experience homelessness again!
Homelessness is solvable. It takes everyone working together across sectors+ leveraging their talents, skills and resources to solve homelessness in our community; everyone has a role and responsibility. Together, we can end homelessness!
