Hahn Releases Statement on 2022 Homeless Count Results
San Pedro, CA– Today, Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn released the following statement after the release of the 2022 Homeless Count results:
“These results are disheartening. They are frustrating to the many people across this county who have dedicated years of their lives to addressing this crisis and they are frustrating to the taxpayers who have invested hundreds of millions of dollars in solutions.
This isn’t just about a number. It is about 69,000 people who are suffering, many in dangerous conditions, without adequate shelter, during a heatwave no less. This count may contain signs of progress, but no one is going to celebrate when there are this many people sleeping on our streets.
More cities need to step up and build tiny homes. It is a model that works.”
