7-7-21:  Below is a very informative and historically accurate report prepared by the UCLA Luskin Center for History and Policy on homelessness. Released Jan/Feb 2021.  Additionally included below, is a link to a podcast "Then and Now" discussing the report in two sessions.

  • Did you see someone experiencing homelessness who needs help? Notice a homeless neighbor who seems to be struggling with their physical and/or mental health? Then you can help them by filling out an outreach request and alert us as to any specific concerns you may have regarding the person’s well-being.
