New Study Finds Growing Homeless Population

Hosted by

A new study paints a bleak picture of LA County’s homeless situation. There are 13,000 new homeless people a month, according to the Economic Roundtable, a nonprofit research group based in L.A. Driving around, you’ve probably seen evidence of this: encampments under overpasses, and streets lined with overflowing shopping carts. Two city ordinances aimed at cleaning things up were implemented in July. But they’re controversial, confusing, and unevenly enforced.
