What We Do

Lancaster Connect is an online hub of Lancaster community services and resources. Funded by the City through a Los Angeles County Innovation Fund grant, the free website is designed to connect residents to local resources such as legal assistance, housing, education, and more.

Lancaster Connect was developed in response to residents’ need for a source of information regarding local community services. While similar resources exist, they primarily serve the Los Angeles metro area. Local residents often expressed frustration when seeking services via these larger providers. Recognizing that access to these services is crucial for the community’s most vulnerable residents, Lancaster’s Homeless Impact Commission included the development of a local information hub as a goal in the City’s Homelessness Plan. Thus, the City set out to create a hyper-local information source specifically for residents and service organizations in Lancaster. Lancaster Connect is committed to assisting citizens with available services and resources through providing a well-organized and easy-to-use website.
