According to the Los Angeles Housing Authority's 2017 census, the number of homeless persons in LA County is 57,794, an increase of 23 percent since 2016.
Some demographics of homelessness (which are not mutually exclusive): Veterans account for 10%. The mentally ill account for 30%. Persons with a physical disability account for 17%. Persons facing domestic violence account for 18%. Individuals with substance abuse account for 23%.
25% of the homeless population are 55 years of age and older.
Our focus is primarily on distributing tents, blankets, clothes, shoes, hygiene packs, and clean water to our fellow Angelenos who are homeless and in need.
