Supervisors Hahn and Ridley-Thomas Fund Strategic Effort to Address Homelessness in South Bay

On January 31st, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a program initiated by Supervisors Janice Hahn and Mark Ridley-Thomas to fund a continued partnership with People Assisting the Homeless (PATH) and South Bay Cities to strategically address homelessness in the South Bay.

The partnership was first initiated in 2016 between LA County, PATH and the South Bay Cities Council of Governments. The program funds targeted outreach to homeless encampments throughout the South Bay, builds a detailed registry of people living at each encampment to help with triaging of resources, and connects homeless residents with permanent housing, mental health services, and substance abuse services. The motion passed today renews this partnership with $210,964 in new funding.
