The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) is the lead homelessness agency for the city and county of LA. In the city, homelessness went up 16% over the last year. 

On Tuesday, the office of LA Controller Ron Galperin released an audit that said LAHSA was failing to hit targets for placing people in shelters, permanent housing, and treatment programs.
