To Improve the Quality of Life For the Homeless, We Went Straight to the Source

The communities listed below told us the exact list of
essentials they needed most

Changes to the 2020 LA homeless demographic survey give a more accurate picture of vulnerability.

  • HUD defines chronic as someone who is homeless for more than a year and has a disabling condition.
  • Due to the methodological changes, 58% more people in 2020 meet the HUD definition of chronic homelessness.

Two-thirds of unsheltered adults are on their first episode of homelessness

  • 59% of those newly homeless cite economic hardship as the main reason.
  • Homelessness starts rising when median rents in a region exceed 22% of median income, and rise even more sharply at 32%. In LA, the median rent is 46.1% of median income.
  • 80% of unsheltered Angelenos have been homeless for more than 5 years.
  • Two-thirds of unsheltered Angelenos became homeless here in LA County.
  • Two-thirds of people experiencing homelessness identify as male.
  • 33% of people experiencing homelessness have endured domestic partner violence.
