The Home L.A. Loan Fund is a one-of-a-kind, risk-free charitable investment option focused on fighting homelessness in Los Angeles County. Donor investments are pooled and used to provide three- or five-year seed capital to organizations building permanent supportive housing units for the chronically homeless. By jump-starting the process, this capital accelerates the pace and scale of production, creating more homes for our neighbors who need them most. All Home L.A. loans are guaranteed by CCF. At the conclusion of the loan, 100% of the initial investment is returned to the donor’s fund, from which any or all of it can be directed back into the Home L.A. Loan Fund or to the charitable fund or organization of the donor’s choosing.
