Frustrated by a lack of cohesion on the part of the City, County, and State, a group of community members and stakeholders came forward to fund a plan. This draft plan considers various barriers and opportunities to solving the homeless crisis in Los Angeles, primarily where it is felt most--in Skid Row.


This is a call to action and further conversation is needed to keep all the working parties engaged!


If you have specific comments regarding the plan -- please email a memo with references to the specific items/numbers on the plan. They will be reviewed and considered in future discussions. Please include your contact information!
