Providing food, shelter, clothing, and other forms of relief to the homeless, one life at a time
According to the most recent count by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority,
there are 58,936 homeless people in Los Angeles County.
With only 14,722 shelter beds available,
44,214 homeless men, women, and children in Los Angeles have nowhere to sleep
other than on sidewalks, in doorways, and on bus benches.
In 2018, 1,047 homeless residents of Los Angeles County died, nearly double the number of people living on the street in Los Angeles who died the year earlier.
Their problem is our problem, and also our responsibility.
With your support, we can do something meaningful to change
the dark and lonely world of the homeless in our community.
Reaching Out California is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization
