Homelessness Up 12% In Los Angeles County : NPR

The rise comes despite two voter-approved tax hikes and more than $600 million spent last year on social services and new supportive housing. Officials blame rising rents and evictions.

Homelessness is up in Los Angeles County for the third time in four years. Numbers released Tuesday show nearly 59,000 people living on the streets or in vehicles — a 12% increase over 2018.

Since 2000, LA County’s median monthly rent has risen 32%, to $2,471, while household income has stagnated, according to the nonprofit California Housing Partnership.

“Hundreds of thousands of Angelenos are on the edge of homelessness, and that has been the case for quite a while,” Lynn said. “We’re essentially catching up … and we have a ways to go.
