In order to stimulate new thinking around addressing the crisis of poverty, Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell and the Los Angeles Housing + Community Investment Department (HCIDLA) convened the inaugural Los Angeles Poverty Prevention Summit. HMA Community Strategies worked with HCIDLA to facilitate the interactive event and produce a policy recommendations report.
“Breaking the cycle: Defining innovative & equitable strategies” is a summary, which synthesizes the ideas generated from the summit into recommendations aimed at reducing poverty in Los Angeles.
HMA Community Strategies colleagues Nayely Chavez, Catherine Guerrero, Rathi Ramasamy, and Charles Robbins conducted research for this report.
