Back Home Initiative

”We must strive to keep using creative solutions until every person in Los Angeles is off the street and on a productive path forward.” - L.A. Councilmember Bob Blumenfield

Dear Los Angeles County homeowners,

Would you like to receive up to $1,000 a month for up to 15 years, increase your property value and help solve homelessness? If you’re a Los Angeles County homeowner who seeks an additional source of passive income and is also concerned that not enough is being done to address homelessness, then sign up for the Back Home Initiative (BHI) today!

BHI is a groundbreaking housing alternative that invests in homeowners’ properties and builds intergenerational wealth while permanently ending the cycle of homelessness, particularly in communities most impacted by the epidemic.

Do you have space in your backyard to build an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU)?

BHI provides eligible homeowners with a fully furnished (appliances included), move-in ready, Studio or 1 Bedroom lytemods™ ADU, built and maintained on their property for up to 15 years, FREE of charge. In addition, property owners receive a monthly stipend of up to $1,000 during the term, after which, BHI will transfer the ADUs ownership to the homeowner, FREE and clear.

BHI expands upon traditional temporary and permanent housing solutions by connecting eligible homeowners and their newly constructed ADUs with individuals and families at-risk of homelessness or those ready to leave transitional housing. BHI provides a comprehensive suite of supports for participating homeowners which includes ADU maintenance, property management, and case management for both homeowners and tenants.

Only a limited number of ADUs are available for qualified homeowners through this program, so don’t delay and reserve your spot today!

Please provide the address of the property that you’d like to build an ADU on:
