LA County Department of Children and Family Services

Communities in Motion (CIM) worked with the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services and The Center for Strategic Partnerships to enhance faith-based partnerships from 2019 to 2023 to develop and implement LA County Faith in Motion. In 2018, the LA County Board of Supervisors, with the assistance of philanthropic support, approved a motion to increase involvement of the faith community in assisting families and foster youth. This effort aims to create stronger participation and support from the faith-based organizations.

LA County Homeless Initiative

CIM in 2021 began working with the LA County Chief Executive Office Homeless Initiative (LA County CEO-HI in engaging Faith-Based Organizations (FBOs) throughout LA County to better understand how the County of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authotiy (LAHSA) can better partner with the faith community on homelessness. A survey was conducted throughout LA County in 2022. Results from the survery produced a set of recommendations that will further engage and improve faith involvement in homelessness.
