Ending chronic homelessness
People experiencing chronic homelessness are among the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in our society, often requiring a disproportionate and costly amount of public health and safety services. A wide body of research shows that permanent supportive housing is the best, most cost-effective solution. In partnership with the public, philanthropic, nonprofit, and private sector stakeholders at work on this urgent issue, we aim to eliminate chronic homelessness in Los Angeles County.Read more about our approach
