- United States of America
Los Angeles has the highest number of homeless anywhere in the nation. 73,000 homeless reside in the County of Los Angeles. 40,000 homeless reside in the City of Los Angeles.
Thousands of Los Angeles residents are one paycheck away from homelessness, one foreclosure away from homelessness, one illness away from homelessness.
Of the 14,000 new housing units built in 2006, 12,000 were for those making $90,000 and above annually.
Housing for the Homeless and Low Income Residents of Los Angeles County
We, the undersigned, demand that our Los Angeles County and City elected officials build, rehabilitate and preserve housing for the homeless and very low income communities at a rate to end homelessness in ten years. Furthermore, we support a mandate whereby at least 20% of housing created in Los Angeles be for those making $17,000 annually and below.
