Thousands of volunteers took part in the 2024 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count, an annual point-in-time census of the homeless population that helps to inform policies and strategies by providing data on geographic distribution and trends among various populations.
“Across Los Angeles County, we come together each January in an essential effort to understand the scope of homelessness in our community,” LA County Board of Supervisors Chair Lindsey Horvath, who also chairs the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) Commission, said. “The Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count is only possible thanks to thousands of volunteers who come together to compassionately support every person in need of a safe place to call home.”
“The information we gather during the Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count helps our County provide life-changing shelter, services, and supportive housing to people experiencing homelessness,” said Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger. “I’m thankful to all the community members and organizations who are doing their part to help their neighbors in need by ensuring every person possible is counted.”
LAHSA will release the results to the public in late spring/early summer 2024 on www.lahsa.org/
