Lyndsay Smith
01:55:54
Thank you for acknowledging the gaps!
@LABamby(She,Ela)
01:58:21
Most of these programs are programs developed with a punitive way of thinking. We need to explore other models!
Veronica she/her
02:00:19
Is this program only for certain Service planning areas or is it open to anyone who is reentering.
@LABamby(She,Ela)
02:03:07
ODR also has typically funded programs and organizations who they "think" are worthy of being funded. I wish they would name a grassroot community based organization who they have fund in the last 3 years who have a budget less than one million dollar budget...
@LABamby(She,Ela)
02:04:58
Please share statistics on how many people have obtain actually permanent housing? Not just a referral but people who have actually have a permanent place to live. Thanks

Veronica she/her

What is ODR current budget? How much of the budget is actually dedicated to housing?
Kristen Ochoa

Are these service only for formally incarceration person?

ODR was created to serve those who are justice involved so at risk for being incarcerated or currently incarcerated
Kristen Ochoa

ODR requires absolutely no proof of citizenship. We serve many undocumented persons

I worry we are hearing about what is being done now and not what we should be doing to reimagine what LA needs and can look like. We need to hear from impacted folks.
Theodore Booker
02:29:16
We don't need anymore presentations after today. Our forthcoming meetings should be focused on coming up with a plan
pete White
02:29:33
But, Liz, in some ways this is also the county of Los Angeles pitching their own stuff.
Eric Ares
02:30:24
Ditto. Thanks for the point, Pete.
Norma Palacios

It would be great that the invitation to present at these meetings be extended to Community Based groups i.e harm reduction groups currently providing services. They do a lot with little funding

Would like to hear more about impacts to transitional age youth which is a rapidly growing unhoused population and what programs are working/not working
Jana Coke
02:31:54
I would like to hear from community based groups and impacted people.
Gina Viola she/her WP4BL
02:32:01
It would be great to hear from folks who are unhoused about what orgs they would like to hear from
pete White
02:32:07
As an organization that worked hard for the passage of Measure J, this was never meant to follow the traditional funding pathways.
pete White
02:32:10
Thanks
Gina Viola she/her WP4BL
02:32:51
Yes - LACAN, Ktwon4all, Streetwatch should be in this space
Liz Sunwoo (she/her) - Facilitator
02:34:33
At the last meeting, it was shared by County ATI staff that there are 2 pathways for 2021 funding for now: 1) We create an infrastructure where funding can pass from county to a third party (like a foundation) so that smaller non-profits can access - this structure currently doesn’t exist so all the subcommittees & Adv Cmte need to build it this year
Nina Dooley
02:35:07
It would be good to hear from presenters what is now available for housing this population and what is NEEDED to help guide our creation for a budget for more interim and permanent housing. ODR did have one slide with that data but did not really focus on that. We are supposed to come up with the housing plan.
Liz Sunwoo (she/her) - Facilitator
02:35:10
2) County programs and initiatives that are already existing that folks want to fund or pass through to non-profits
Yvette Crayon
02:35:10
suggestion:can we conciser unincorporated areas of los angles County to provide ADU housing which include wrap around services and occupational enrichment trades
Barry Lindstrom (he/him) @ Amtiy Foundation
02:36:59
Understanding what is already being paid for either by county or state funds is useful in terms of knowing where we should focus the measure J funding. Maybe funneling the money towards what is NOT being paid for. Liz Sunwoo's comments is appreciated as we need to get the services to people and providers with a minimal amount of difficulty.
Amy Roth (she/her)
02:37:00
Are we looking at making this funding accessible through applications similar to CDBG and EFSP? Or is this going to be something completely different?
Liz Sunwoo (she/her) - Facilitator
02:37:14
Funding infrastructure can change and grow as Measure J infrastructure builds in the next 1-3 yrs
Angela De Los Santos
02:38:16
We are aware that existing services are limited or are not working. What are we going to do to house people who are never assess through the CES? who do not meet the criteria of "most vulnerable" based on the CES' algorithm?
Commissioner Bruce Boyden
02:39:21
great information I must leave I will be at the next meeting
@LABamby(She,Ela)
02:40:12
I completely agree @TedBooker!
Angela De Los Santos

Gabrielle Melville
02:41:02
Is the RBH program going to open up to other providers ever, or will it continue to just be treatment centers who are already contracted with you?
Sophia Li she/her - Community co-chair, Brilliant Corners
02:41:08
@Gina - To give full transparency, we reached out to all 3 of those groups for presentations and had reps from Streetwatch LA, KTown For All and LACAN who were prepared to present today. The co-chairs were not initially included in outreach / meeting design for today. I totally agree with you and expressed that hearing solely about data / from County orgs would feel top down and not community-based, AKA in the spirit of Measure J. Moving forward, I hope we can collectively choose how we use this time together.
David.Sanders
02:42:26
each of the presenters seems to present the same data and service the same impacted people. Are they all funded by the County general funds? Are they funded by special funds like Measure H?
@LABamby(She,Ela)
02:42:45
We need to hear from alternative programs that work for our peoples!! We do not want to learn about what we already know!!
Gina Viola she/her WP4BL
02:42:54
Thank you @Sophia. And I do hope we will hear from the unhoused as well.
Gabrielle Melville
02:43:05
YES
Travion Chamberlain
02:43:15
RBH is great hom prevention temporary housing program.
Shannon Murray
02:43:23
We definitely need to be thinking outside of the traditional boxes with this funding. We do not have enough options that work for EVERYONE.
Molly Rysman she/her (LAHSA)
02:44:50
I second Steve's point about lifting up work to preserve and protect people's legal rights to housing
@LABamby(She,Ela)
02:45:08
We should have time to develop the recommendations. The system already is set up the way it is. What we need is to learn from new models that work for our peoples
David.Sanders
02:45:18
I hope the work groups can offer concrete processes to expand on new ideas - Reimagine.
Jana Coke
02:45:58
I agree with Steve Diaz. Prevention to homelessness and not pacifying it should be the focus.
Lucero Noyola
02:46:29
I think hearing from the city and affordable/permanent supportive housing developers would be helpful because they are the ones who direct and use funding. they know what funding go towards and how it’s used and what types of units the money is tied to and stuff like that
Ron (He/They)
02:46:46
Thank you for uplifting that Cue! There is a pandemic right now and many people are losing housing!
Tanya Ortiz she/her

Liz Sunwoo (she/her) - Facilitator
02:47:53
We will take some time in breakout groups after this public comment so we can begin to develop these ideas you all have shared
@LABamby(She,Ela)
02:48:16
How can we ensure that the most marginalized get the housing that they need rather than programs? We do not need more programs. The money for this "housing" needs to be allocated for the people and not the county.
Bill Tarkanian (he / him)
02:48:55
Thank you Lucero. I agree -- because they are part of the existing funding scheme -- I feel we should hear from them as to how the money is being used. I also want to hear from others too . . .
Bill Tarkanian (he / him)
02:49:51
I agree Nina, and thank you Phillip for your input.
Dora Leong Gallo (she/her), ACOF
02:50:10
Thanks Nina.
Sophia Li she/her - Community co-chair, Brilliant Corners
02:50:18
I hear and agree with folks who have mentioned the need to invest in the CBOs that are for and by community members and have not historically received funding. That being said, I am cautious of completely disregarding existing models that have shown success in housing people (e.g., many of ODR's housing models) but have not been given funding that matches the magnitude of ppl who qualify for diversion and housing supports
Bianca Jackson
02:50:26
also, is there consideration for older adults who are experiencing homelessness?
Ramon Quintana
02:50:44
I agree with need for housing needs data.
pete White
02:50:54
Let's also be really clear, this is not "oppression Olympics" budgeting - the entire budget is at play. While it is important for us to focus on the various pools lets not lose sight of the entire pie.
Roz w/Amity FDN (she/her)
02:51:42
I agree with Theodore Booker and Steve. This isn't the platform for County representations.
pete White
02:52:43
I actually DON'T wanna hear that!
Gina Viola she/her WP4BL
02:52:50
not one bit!
@LABamby(She,Ela)
02:52:57
The question is, how we are going to organize to ensure that our recommendations do actually make it to the CEO and the BOSs. This is an "advisory board" meaning we are not official. We need to start thinking about how we are going to make sure that the money actually goes to the people rather than the stablishment...
Shirley Torres (she/her) Homeboy Industries
02:53:10
Yes, and lets explore how housing is tied to public safety
Amy Roth (she/her)

We had a great discussion about the needs for permanent deeply affordable housing (30% AMI) for system-involved young adults and beyond just TAY
Luis Ramirez (He/Him/His)
03:06:17
As well as the need for supportive housing for youth
@LABamby(She,Ela)
03:06:21
special populations need to be named (i.e. trans people)
Mischa DiBattiste (she/her)
03:06:31
^^ Yes! I am always here to uplift the experiencing and specific needs of TAY!

Additionally sub populations, including queer and trans folks/youth!
Nina Dooley

Our group decided we need more clarity on this subcommittee of what we are supposed to be doing: creating a goal for housing for diversion and re-entry needs OR perhaps solving homelessness with housing for the larger crisis? Might we get guidance from our leaders here?

We need to develop recommendations on how the money will be distributed
Molly Rysman she/her (LAHSA)
03:08:56
I would not recommend trying to solve homelessness as a lifelong homeless advocate

group 13 recommendations 1) expand special populations that get reserved unit to system impacted folx (child welfare & justice impacted) no age limit 2) make afffordable housing truly affordable by keeping it at 30%AMI 3) require affordable units in every development not just ones that use incentives 4) create a system that hold developer’s accountable for how they fill their affordable units
Liz Sunwoo (she/her) - Facilitator
03:09:32
@Nina - it can be either or both and in between. That is part of our challenge - that this housing area is so big
Nina Dooley
03:09:48
Thanks, Molly. Some think that IS a goal here. So we need clarity.
Lyndsay Smith
03:09:48
I agree Zin - the framework needs to be established and held to!

Can we swing the pendulum to individuals that have no diagnosis but served long term incarceration. Barrier: Housing is very difficult due to lack of credit rating to qualify for housing. How will Measure J assist those individual
@LABamby(She,Ela)
03:10:03
I have to go to the reentry meeting but we need to have specific housing led and managed by trans led organizations

Who are the most impacted groups in our HOUSING that we should focus Measure J investments on this year?Think about the groups who face the greatest inequities and disparities in our focus area.
Lyndsay Smith
03:12:12
I don’t understand the question
Vanessa Luna (she/her) BC
03:12:14
Our group discussed barriers to housing such as the Section 8 program's criminal background checks that should be addressed with this funding as well as the importance of other supports for those re-entering (sober living, jobs, etc.).
Pamela, Fernandeno Tataviam Tribe
03:12:14
Is there a form that we can populate and submit as official public comment outside of this meeting?

Hector M. Ramirez he/they
03:12:55
Lack of housing services for people experiencing Domestic Violence, and lack of community based and driven housing programs for Latino, Native American, Disabled, LGBTQIA2S+, and Black communities in the San Fernando Valley
@LABamby(She,Ela)
03:12:59
How is it that there is so many presentations and only five minutes for public comment? This is ridiculous!
@LABamby(She,Ela)
03:13:35
This is supposed to be a community process not a "county" process...
Ron (He/They)
03:14:00
+1 Bamby! This does not feel inclusive of community
Pamela, Fernandeno Tataviam Tribe
03:14:02
Will there by Listening Sessions?
Dora Leong Gallo (she/her), ACOF
03:14:07
Our group discussed how the systems don't work together - mental health, housing, probation, etc.. How some regulations make it difficult to provide housing to those who need it the most, and that we need to start brainstorming solutions in this subcommittee.
Juan Navarro
03:14:07
need housing for patients in substance use disorder treatment
Barry Lindstrom (he/him) @ Amtiy Foundation

Barry Lindstrom (he/him) @ Amtiy Foundation

Awesome, gotta love that guy....
Ryan Lehman

Shirley Torres (she/her) Homeboy Industries
03:18:52
Thanks Jose! Thanks for raising the issues of those who directly impact public safety..and a true exit-ramp off the revolving door of incarceration. Healing needs to be primary…housing is a basic need and without basic needs being met, then Healing is secondary.
Vanessa Luna (she/her) BC
03:18:52
+to Ron's comments and Ryan's comment (more time for breakout rooms)

Alvin Teng (he/him)
03:21:28
I think overall we need more facilitation so that we're actually building towards recommendations, rather than just listening to information
Liz Sunwoo (she/her) - Facilitator
03:21:30
For 2021. We hope to have more time next year
Dora Leong Gallo (she/her), ACOF
03:21:32
Yes, more conversation. Let the conversation drive what type of presentations we might need, not the other way around.
Barry Lindstrom (he/him) @ Amtiy Foundation
