Solutions to Homelessness in Los Angeles
Finally Family Homes is a 501(c)3 nonprofit offering solutions to homelessness in Los Angeles county.
We partner with youth who are leaving foster care without having been placed in a forever family to help them succeed in life. Together, we tackle their risk factors of homelessness and human trafficking by empowering them to achieve meaningful connections, success, and a positive impact on the world.
We connect young adults with hope and help them tap into their potential to achieve an extraordinary life
Finally Family Homes chose Santa Clarita, a beautiful city on the northwestern edge of Los Angeles County. Our region is home to the largest foster care system in the nation as well as the largest population of unsheltered homeless.

Moved to Action
We know that isolation and lack of supportive relationships make youth from foster care particularly vulnerable to predators and homelessness. We saw the institutional systems in place now as severely lacking in building lasting connections and a caring community.
We believe a more compassionate, empowering, and connected approach to helping youth transition out of foster care is what’s lacking in current solutions to homelessness in Los Angeles. So we founded Finally Family Homes in 2017 to build real and lasting connections with transition-aged foster youth, while nurturing them in every area of their lives including personal development, education, mindset, relationships, financial freedom, and spirituality.
Breaking the Cycle of Poverty
We believe one of the best ways for young adults to break the cycle of poverty is to get out from under the systems that force them to depend on government funding that ultimately ends up in the pockets of landlords.
In the extreme housing market that is Los Angeles, we offer youth the unique opportunity to build to own their tiny homes on wheels. Having ownership in a tiny home gives them more control over their living situation, including the chance to live in safer neighborhoods than public assisted rentals.
We Believe In the Power of Connection
We are run by a talented team of volunteers from a variety of backgrounds, skills, and gifts, with a shared passion to invest in and care for foster youth thrust into the world without the security of a home or family.
We believe genuine, healthy connection is the key to our success and theirs. Though they might not have a family of blood, they have a family with us and the additional support of the many organizations we partner with.
