Did you miss the Town Hall Discussion on Homelessness? No problem! You can catch up by viewing the recording and accessing the slide deck below. 
For more information and specific details, please reach out to the Housing Coordinator, Kenya Marquez, at or (818) 837-1540.
The City of San Fernando finds itself in a unique position with a relatively small homeless population and the ability to make a real impact to reduce homelessness in the City through person-centered homelessness solutions.

To request outreach for a person experiencing homelessness:

  • (1) Send an email to and (2) submit a request to LA County Homeless Outreach Portal (LA-HOP). Please be sure to include any specific concerns you may have regarding the person’s well-being.
  • Call the Police Department at (818) 898-1267 if the individual is trespassing, harassing, or engaging in other illegal activity.

The City’s Homeless Outreach Service Team (HOST) – San Fernando Police Department and Los Angeles Family Housing – will respond to the outreach request.  HOST also conducts monthly outreach.   

The City understands the need to take a more measured and strategic approach to address the significant gaps in resource, services, and capacity to address homelessness.  In 2022, the City prepared a 5-Year Homelessness Action Plan to develop a strategic roadmap to “get to zero” for addressing homelessness.  The Homelessness Action Plan lays out tangible steps that the City and its partners can take over the next five years to move towards a system where homelessness is prevented whenever possible and ensure that, if homelessness does occur, it is rare, brief, and non-recurring.

The Homelessness Action Plan focuses on four key priorities:

  • Priority 1: Develop City’s Capacity to Better Prevent and End Homelessness
  • Priority 2: Address the Access, Shelter, and Service Needs of People Experiencing Unsheltered Homelessness
  • Priority 3: Focus on Root Causes to Prevent Homelessness 

The City continues to work for greater coordination at a regional level between the County, municipalities, metropolitan planning organizations, and the various council of governments to create a comprehensive planning effort to allocate resources and address the existing needs of our homeless population. The City of San Fernando is an active participant in the San Fernando Valley Council of Governments Homeless Coalition, Service Planning Area 2 homeless service provider’s monthly meetings, and the Northeast Valley Homeless Task Force.

The City of San Fernando residents have access to two first-time homebuyer programs offered by the Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA).  LACDA offers a Home Ownership Program (HOP) and a Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC) Program.  The City is a participating jurisdiction in both HOP and MCC programs in which San Fernando residents can participate in both of these programs, and both programs can be used in conjunction.  These programs are offered to households with Area Median Income (AMI) levels of 80 percent.  For example, a single person household median income cannot exceed $66,750. Program assistance is available only to income-eligible persons and families who have not owned a home in the last three years.  The property must be a single-family detached home, or condominium.


Los Angeles County’s HOP provides a loan of up to $85,000 or 20 percent of the purchase price of a new home (maximum purchase price is $700,000), whichever is less.  The loan is offered as a down payment and/or closing assistance with zero percent interest.  Repayment of the loan is required when the home is sold, transfer of title, or the home is no longer owner-occupied.  The prospective home to be purchased must be intended to be owner-occupied. Participants must attend eight hours of homebuyer counseling offered by a counseling agency approved by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

For additional information and to apply for this program please visit


Los Angeles County’s MCC Program offers qualified first-time homebuyers a Federal income tax credit, where homeowners may convert up to 20 percent of their annual mortgage interest into a direct dollar-for-dollar tax credit on their U.S. individual income tax returns.  The remaining 80 percent of the mortgage interest will continue to qualify as an itemized tax deduction. This creates additional net spendable income for qualified first-time homebuyers to use toward their monthly mortgage payment.

For additional information and to apply for this program please visit


Home Rehabilitation Loan Program can assist qualified homeowners to rehabilitate their homes to eliminate safety hazards and improve substandard housing conditions. Since Los Angeles County does not have a home rehabilitation program for San Fernando residents, the City is working on re-establishing the City’s Home Rehabilitation Loan Program that was offered prior to 2012.  If you’re interested in this program, please contact the Community Development Department at or (818) 898-1227.
