The need is so great, but never has there been an even greater opportunity to truly end homelessness in Los Angeles County. Building on the successful passage of Prop HHH and United Way’s fundraising at the 10th Annual HomeWalk, we have the opportunity to make 2017 the turning point year in ending homelessness in Los Angeles — but it all relies on how we finish 2016! Homelessness is not an “other people” issue, it affects every Angeleno. Consider: 1 in 5 Angelenos are just one paycheck away from homelessness and 1 out of every 217 people are homeless.
