Reducing Homelessness

Today, Los Angeles approaches homelessness with unprecedented collaboration between the County, City, and non-profit partners. In February 2016, The City and County passed historic plans to handle homelessness in a way that focuses on the Housing First model, so that people get connected to housing and services---and stay off the street for good. Last year, we also raised the minimum wage in Los Angeles to $15/hr, and Mayor Garcetti’s administration established its goal to add 100,000 housing units by 2021. By working together on both short-term and long-term strategies to confront homelessness, Los Angeles is taking the opportunity to make real change a reality for those who need it most. What suggestions do you have to further the goal of ending homelessness in Los Angeles?
