Funded by the Home for Good Funders Collaborative, the fellowship is a full-time position awarded from July 2018 to June 2019 and will place awardees at five different public agencies:

  • City of Pasadena

  • Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health

  • Office of Los Angeles City Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson

  • Office of Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas

  • Office of Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl

Awardees will have the opportunity to network with a wide range of agencies, providers, policy-makers, and other leaders in the field of homelessness in Los Angeles. United Way hopes to pilot the fellowship program as something that can be replicated in other counties that are struggling with issues of homelessness.
