The City of Rancho Palos Verdes is located in Service Planning Area (SPA) 8 of Los Angeles County, and we utilize Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) resources to assist our residents in their greatest times of need. We promote the County's focused Coordinated Entry System (CES) so that professionals can link those in need to the appropriate service providers and resources.
The following are a list of resources for those experiencing homelessness, may be at-risk, or are in need of other social services:
