Weather activated shelters now open!

Winter shelters provide shelter, warmth, food, and comfort to unhoused individuals during the cold and wet weather season. In addition to temporary emergency shelters, each program location provides access to supportive services and housing assistance. The Los Angeles Housing Services Authority (LAHSA) coordinates the Winter Shelter Program in partnership with the California National Guard, the county of Los Angeles, and the city of Los Angeles. MINC's boundaries include addresses in Service Planning Area (SPA) 4 and 6.


Sites may activate if one or two of the following conditions are met:

  • Two consecutive days where daytime temperature highs are below 50 degrees

  • Nighttime lows are below 40 degrees

  • One or more consecutive days of heavy rainfall

SPA 4 activated some sites earlier in the week. We have included information below, but for the most up to date information, please use the below links. It may be a good idea to bookmark them if you can.
