The Task Force hosts bimonthly forums to connect with the Palisades community. At each meeting, we answer questions, solicit ideas, provide progress updates, and convene experts to address the pressing issues related to homelessness. These meetings are discussion opportunities - not lectures - and we appreciate every contribution.  The ideas debated here ultimately turn into concrete solutions, whether it's a Panhandling Policy or partnerships with local agencies.


Our efforts are only as strong as the community that supports them, so we encourage all to attend, whether they're new to the issue or have engaged with it for years.

Featured Speaker:
Lewis C. Horne
CBRE President, Advisory Services, Pacific Southwest

Lewis C. Horne, President, Advisory Services, of the Pacific Southwest Division of CBRE, the largest real estate company in the U.S., returns to speak to PPTFH about the successes and challenges of partnering with government agencies to build the amount of permanent affordable housing required to effectively address homelessness in Los Angeles. 

Mr. Horne will describe activities tackled over the last two years, despite the complications in planning and budgeting due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Were other private-sector CEOs enlisted in the efforts to provide housing? Who provided funding and how was it used? Was housing built? What does the future hold? How is the public-private partnership working and how can the corporate community partner with elected officials to address these ongoing homelessness issues in the region? Come hear the answers to these questions, and bring your own!
