Los Angeles Declares a "State of Emergency" on Homelessness

Hosted by

Homelessness has increased by some 12% in Los Angeles since last year. The 4000 people downtown on Skid Row are just 15% of the total on the streets of the city. Today, members of a City Council committee called homeless an "emergency," and called for $100 million for housing and other services.
