Volunteer for the Homeless Count
In 2018, Los Angeles County’s homeless population decreased for the first time in four years. But the forces driving people into homelessness persist, and we see the results on our streets. LA still has the largest unsheltered homeless population in the country.
Every year, we conduct a census of the homeless population through the Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count. The Count helps us better understand homelessness in our region and direct resources where they’re needed most.
You can now register for the Count, which will take place January 22-24. We need 8,000 volunteers to canvas more than 80 cities and 200 communities across LA County.
