Members of a broad coalition — United Way, PATH, a formerly homeless veteran, and a L.A. Business Council — spoke with the media about the broad support that exists for an L.A. County ballot measure to fund supportive services and housing for the homeless. This coalition signed a letter to the county’s board of supervisors urging them to put a measure to fund supportive services on the March ballot, and they delivered it to the board.
The problem of homelessness in L.A. is growing every year. There are tens of thousands of homeless people, and many of them are women and children. We need to act now to solve this problem and to help homeless people get off the streets.
