Invisible People Report: Who Do We Call When a Homeless Person Needs help?

Homelessness Is a Nationwide Crisis That Must Be Addressed.
A lot can happen in 15 years: You attend college. You get a new job. You rent your first apartment. You get married, start a family, buy a house. For Jossalyn, little has happened. She has spent the past 15 years homeless.

Like many others I meet on the streets, Jossalyn has fallen through the gaps in the safety net. She is surviving now, but how long will it be before Jossalyn becomes critically vulnerable?

Iím reminded of a question Nancy Lublin and her daughter asked me repeatedly on a recent tour of Skid Row. Besides 911, who can people call when they see a homeless person needing help? And there are people in dire need of homeless services everywhere.

2. K&R

LA County Bd of Supervisors approved $300 million for 100% nonverifiable voting machines, no questions asked, and did not even have that much in the budget to pay for the machines. This was a 100% wasteful and deceitful decision.

...meanwhile, people are suffering in the streets, and all programs for the homeless are underfunded.
