Los Angeles is often called the homeless capital of the United States. With 90,000 or more people on the streets and in shelters, the homelessness crisis there has been growing worse in recent years. A blue-ribbon panel of homeless experts, advocates, academics, service providers and politicians recently produced a comprehensive ten-year strategic plan called Bring LA Home. Like the Wellesley Institute’s Blueprint to End Homelessness in Toronto, the Los Angeles plan comes in two parts: A short summary that sets out the key issues and broad targets for action; and a more detailed policy report.
