Fighting COVID-19 Means Fighting the Cycle of Homelessness

A senior citizen living alone in a hotel room he can barely afford. Families staring down eviction because a parent is one of the millions of Californians to lose their job this year.  More than 269,000 K-12 students currently experiencing, or on the brink of homelessness across California, enough to fill Dodger Stadium five times over. This is the picture of homelessness in Los Angeles today — a crisis that has been allowed to fester for decades, and has greatly worsened due to COVID-19.
