Home For Good is a blueprint to end chronic and veteran homelessness in L.A. County by 2016. One of the most convincing data points is how much of a city’s resources can be saved housing people rather than leaving them to live on the streets.
“It is over 40% cheaper to house people than to leave them on our streets, where they cycle through our jails and emergency rooms.”
The Action Plan offers four very simple strategies to reach the goal:
- KNOW WHO’S HOMELESS AND WHAT THEY NEED
- CREATE THE HOUSING AND SERVICES TO HELP PEOPLE THRIVE
- SHIFT TO A HOUSING FIRST SYSTEM
- GET INVOLVED, INVOLVE OTHERS
