This season, the WSP number of emergency shelter beds will be approximately 1,653 beds


                                                                                            2
  at 13 locations throughout the City & County. In addition to temporary emergency shelter,
  each winter shelter provides meals and access to services and supportive housing.

  LAHSA is fortunate to partner with local service providers to administer the day-to-day
  operations of each program. This season, Catholic Charities, East San Gabriel Valley
  Coalition, EIMAGO, Inc., Long Beach Rescue Mission, MJB Recovery, People Helping People,
  Pomona Neighborhood Center, The Salvation Army, and the Santa Clarita Community
  Development Corporation will operate shelters in Bell, Glendale, Culver City, West LA, the
  East San Gabriel Valley, Lancaster, Long Beach, Pomona, Santa Clarita, Sylmar, Downtown
  LA and South LA.

  Access to winter shelters is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Those in need of
  emergency shelter can access free transportation to a winter shelter via 38 pick-up points
  throughout the City & County. For a full listing of shelter schedules and pick-up points, click

  the City & County of Los Angeles, with the support of the California National Guard. Last
  winter, the WSP provided emergency shelter and services to 9,341 homeless individuals and
  632 homeless families. Of those, 227 families and 404 individuals have since been placed

the Self-Help Legal Access Center (SHLAC)

About SHLAC

Developed and funded by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, the Self-Help Legal Access
Center (SHLAC) program is administered by the Los Angeles County Department of Consumer Affairs,
and operated by Neighborhood Legal Services (NLS) and Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles (LAFLA).

What We Do

The SHLAC program meets a critical need in Los Angeles County by providing information and
resources to people that are representing themselves in court without the help of an attorney.

SHLACs          Provide information about court procedures;
                Distribute required court forms;
                Provide trained legal professionals to review court forms after they have been filled
                 out;
                Host workshops; and
                Provide one-on-one assistance.



Each SHLAC is staffed by a trained lawyer, knowledgeable professionals, and volunteers.

There is no lawyer-client relationship between SHLAC staff and SHLAC patrons. SHLAC staff do not go
to court with the patrons they assist. The purpose of SHLAC is to provide information and resources to
patrons so that they can effectively represent themselves in court.

SHLACs provide assistance for the following types of cases:

Family Law

      Divorce



                                                                                                     28
