25,000 HOMELESS HOUSING UNITS BY 2025
Last year, LAHSA examined the city’s existing system and analyzed what would be needed to end homelessness in Los Angeles. The report estimated that 45,941 units would be required. This total includes temporary housing, transitional housing, rapid rehousing, and permanent supportive housing. At the present date, the city has about half that amount.
To address the situation, we are introducing a motion with the expressed goal of securing 25,000 new units by 2025. This motion calls for creatively leveraging the city's financial and land resources to house with the urgency that this problem deserves.
