According to the most recent count by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority,
there are 57,794 homeless people in Los Angeles County, a 23% increase since 2016.
With only 14,496 shelter beds available,
43,298 homeless men, women, and children in Los Angeles have nowhere to sleep
other than on sidewalks, in doorways, and on bus benches.
Their problem is our problem.
With your support, we can do something meaningful to change
the dark and lonely world of the homeless in our community.
