Thousands of people are working to end homelessness in L.A. County, but we have to think bigger.

What have we achieved so far?

Thousands of people are working to end homelessness in L.A. County, from the outreach workers who help people sleeping outside secure medical care and housing to the advocates who pressure our elected leaders to take action.

Because of all these people, we’re making progress, but we have much more to do.

Who is currently experiencing homelessness?

Every year, volunteers fan out across L.A. County to count and talk to people without homes. Among their findings: Black people are four times likelier to experience homeless in L.A. than white people, and a critical shortage of homes people can afford continues to drive homelessness. More than 70,000 people moved from homelessness into housing last year, and more than 80,000 lost their homes.
