    About The Homeless Count

    All across Los Angeles every January, we embark on a three-day mission to count our homeless neighbors. From these efforts and thanks to our caring communities, we don’t have to accept homelessness as an unsolvable problem.

    Last year we conducted the largest homeless census in the nation:

    • 7500+ volunteers
    • 100 percent coverage of the Los Angeles Continuum of Care’s census tracts
    • 5000+ completed demographic surveys

    About The Youth Count

    The Youth Count provides a snapshot of how many unaccompanied youth under age 18 (without a parent or guardian), and transition age young adults (age 18-24) are experiencing homelessness on any given night throughout the Los Angeles area.
