Asset Mapping in Los Angeles County

Jan 11, 2021

People experiencing homelessness often face challenges connecting to the employment supports they want and need. Asset mapping is a process by which communities can gain a clearer understanding of available services, the systems and agencies that deliver them, and how individuals connect to those services in order to improve referral pathways and ensure people receive the services they need.

This resource outlines the steps of L.A. County's asset-mapping process for two cluster communities in the county: South Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley. We hope this resource will provide communities with one example of potential steps and resources to consider as they develop their own asset-mapping process.
