If You Are Homeless
You are considered homeless if:
- You are currently living in a place not meant for people to live in – this includes your car, alleyways, and riverbeds.
- You are staying someplace but have to leave within 7 days.
- An agency is paying for you to stay in a motel or hotel.
- Other situations may qualify as homeless; please call our office at (818) 246-7900 to learn more.
If you are homeless in the Greater Glendale area, we recommend you call (818) 246- 7900 for more information, or come by Monday through Thursday as close to 7 a.m. as possible. We conduct up to four intake interviews per day.
This is the current HUD definition for homelessness:
An individual who lacks a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence; and an individual who has a primary nighttime residence that is a supervised publicly or privately operated shelter designed to provide temporary living accommodations (including welfare hotels, congregate shelters, and transitional housing for the mentally ill); an institution that provides a temporary residence for individuals intended to be institutionalized; or a public or private place not designed for, or ordinarily used as, a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings.
