Translating tax dollars to homeless prevention

Hosted by

All this week, on KCRW, you've been listening to the stories of people on the verge of becoming – or who are already – homeless in L.A. County. Homelessness jumped 23 percent countywide when compared to last year. And that means more than 58,000 people are currently living on the streets – or in shelters. Voters approved new taxes on themselves to help address the problem and that includes money for homeless prevention.
