Their Mission Statement

Lamp Community ends homelessness of Los Angeles' most vulnerable individuals, primarily adults with mental illness, through a continuum of services and housing, enabling them to reach their highest level of self-sufficiency and community integration.

Summary of Impact

Lamp carefully tracks the progress of all its clients, and over the years, the agency has recorded much success in helping homeless women and men living with disabilities to improve their health and self-sufficiency through outreach, housing and wellness. In the last year alone, Lamp helped its clients in the following ways: 95% of housing program participants maintained their housing for a year or more. The housing stability rate is among the highest in the nation. 79% of clients utilized one or more mental helath services at the agency, allowing for significant improvement in mental health status. Additionally, 68% voluntarily and actively participated in co-occurring disorder groups, community functions and other networking support. 71% maintained compliance with their medication regimens, as evidenced by a combination of staff observation and decreases in symptoms that interfere with housing stability. 90% of eligible and participating clients attained government benefits within 12 months of program entry, of the 10% not successful after initial application, almost 100% received benefits after appeal. Moreover, Lamp staff noticed a drastic reduction in the number of days Lamp members spent in hospitals or emergency services. Only 9% of participants were hospitalized for medical reasons and 3% for short term psychiatric stabilization. Less than 6% reported ememrgency room visits for medical reasons. Beyond its benefit to the people served by its supportive housing programs, Lamp's work has been shown to clearly benefit the wider community. A 2009 study by the Economic Roundtable concluded that it is far less expensive to provide supportive housing to homeless individuals in Los Angeles than to leave them on the street, where they become heavy users of public services. The organization reported that a homeless individual with co-occurring mental illness and substance abuse costs the public about $60,456 per year, mostly in health care costs. By contrast, it costs Lamp approximately $15,000 per year to house and provide services to a chronically homeless adult with similar challenges. Additionally, the report notes that permanent supportive housing, like that offered through Lamp. cuts public costs incurred through emergency and other health care expenses for formerly homeless individuals by as much as 79% per person.
