Homelessness (in LA, and the world)…

Pale Shelter (You Don’t Give Me Love)

“When there are thousands of people experiencing homelessness, many of them un-sheltered, sleeping on our streets, in our parks, with literally not even a roof over their heads, that is a crisis that deserves our urgent attention and action. But we need to make sure that we don’t respond with ineffective solutions; we need to ensure that we respond with the solutions that we know will work – Housing First approaches, providing rapid connections to affordable housing and permanent supportive housing, and partnering those housing interventions with the right level and kinds of services for each individual and family. And we need to make sure that we take those solutions to the scale needed in each community to resolve the current crises and prevent them from re-occurring, to truly make homelessness in our country a rare, brief, and non-recurring experience.”
