WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE PART OF A CITY AND COUNTY-WIDE COLLABORATION TO END HOMELESSNESS?

In the fall of 2016, Proposition HHH, a $1.2B housing bond, passed overwhelmingly in Los Angeles to provide up to 10,000 new units of permanent supportive housing, an effective, compassionate, and permanent solution to caring for homeless Angelenos. A few months later, voters across L.A. County passed a measure to fund homelessness services, which is expected to generate up to $3.5B over the next ten years. Download our safe parking report.
