LA County Moves to Keep Homeless Shelters Open Longer

2.5 million dollars will be allocated to keeping three homeless shelters in LA county open until November, a temporary solution to the long-standing problem of Los Angeles shelter closures after the winter.

Two shelters in Bell and Long Beach will reopen shortly, offering over 240 beds and services for homeless citizens. Another shelter in Pomona, currently only open for 14 hours a day, will also operate at full capacity.

LA county made a larger commitment toward keeping its homeless population cared for earlier this year, when Measure H passed by a 66% majority. The measure outlined a .25% local sales tax to be built up over 10 years and used to fund homeless services and prevention. In the meantime, the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) is committed to coming up with better solutions for the present.

The number of homeless men and women per night in Los Angeles country is estimated at 47,000.

    such detailed about my difficulty. You are incredible!

  2. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The
    words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do
    with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you
    know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Many thanks

  3. Hello, I do believe your web site could be having web browser compatibility issues.
    When I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however,
    when opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues. I merely
    wanted to give you a quick heads up! Apart from that,
    fantastic website!

  5. Howdy! I understand this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website like yours
    require a lot of work? I am brand new to running a
    blog however I do write in my journal daily. I’d like to start a
    blog so I can easily share my experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for
    brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
