What do we want to accomplish?
Beds, Services, and the Obligation to Use Them. We are seeking a legally enforceable mandate whereby the community provides beds and services to those ready, willing, and able to accept shelter. At the same time, living in public spaces is forbidden and laws are enforced. This is a balanced social contract whereby the community is able to provide for those most vulnerable on our streets while also removing those who exist to prey on those vulnerable and the communities in which they reside.
Options exist for less than $10,000 per bed. For just a quarter of the Proposition HHH funds the City of Los Angeles could provide a bed for every homeless Angeleno in the street. For less than 1% of the County of Los Angeles’ $36 billion budget, the County could provide a bed for every homeless Angeleno in its jurisdiction.
