HOMELESSNESS COMMITTEE ARCHIVE BELOW:

The Committee on Homelessness is tasked with reviewing local issues and concerns in relation to the City’s Comprehensive Homeless Strategy, which establishes up front that the City cannot achieve a reduction in homelessness unilaterally. Central to an effective system to reduce homelessness is on-going coordination with the County of Los Angeles, existing non-profit providers, and Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA).

With the crisis on our streets, we need to get everyone into shelter as soon as we possibly can.
