A collaborative effort to end homelessness

We are dedicated to ending homelessness by providing a rental system that benefits everyone.

LeaseUp is a PATH initiative that partners with property managers, owners, and developers to fill their vacancies while helping people at risk of homelessness find and maintain housing. By providing an innovative rental system, consistent support, and financial incentives, we ensure a smooth, streamlined process for property managers, owners, and developers, service providers, and people seeking housing.

LeaseUp has been backed by funding from the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) since February 2018 and has worked with over 600 property managers, owners, and developers across Southern California since its launch. Our goal is to engage an ever-growing number of partners to provide a fair, fast, stress-free housing solution for our neighbors in need.

How we're different

Financial incentives, quick turnaround, & risk mitigation

  • Progressive financial incentive packages
  • Protection against damage and maintenance support with government-backed funds
  • Vacancy loss funds if a match doesn’t work out or a tenant moves

Dedicated support

  • Housing specialists who help match the right tenant for each vacancy
  • Immediate mediation if issues arise with tenants
  • 24/7 direct support hotline
  • Case managers who schedule regular on-site check-ins with tenants
