A Mobile App for Youth in Need
WIN is a free mobile and web app designed to connect homeless or resource insecure youth ages 12-25 to essential services- all accessible without a referral. Developed by Our Children LA with guidance from our region’s unaccompanied youth, WIN users can search a database of over 1400 essential service providers and connect to 11 categories of resources.
the First and Only Mobile App Designed for and with Los Angeles’ Homeless Youth
Over 70% of homeless youth use a smart device and most have access to computers, but many of them cannot find reliable and up-to-date information about shelter, food, jobs and other services they need. Our Children LA saw an opportunity to improve the lives of unaccompanied youth by developing a technological solution appealing to today’s mobile savvy population. The result is an unprecedented collaboration between the OCLA leadership, dedicated volunteers and participating youth focus groups at various drop-in centers around Los Angeles County. Our Children LA launched WIN in Fall 2015. Use Links below to the GooglePlay and iTunes stores!

A Community Coming Together
WIN enables concerned adults to provide helpful information to unaccompanied youth, even those who do not have a smart device. It allows service providers to amplify their efforts by directly updating bed availability, contact information and program descriptions. WIN was designed to empower not just homeless youth but the whole community, working together for a Los Angeles where all young people are safe, healthy and respected.
