Homeless Blog on Venice's Homeless

New, 25 comments

The LA Homeless Blog on that Venice vote to create overnight parking district, a move that could restrict where people living in cars can park: "Using the law to restrict homelessness in a neighborhood or city is not unusual. Such action is occurring around the country. But such laws need to be balanced with appropriate investment in housing and services for people who are homeless. Otherwise, we are just pushing the problem into other neighborhoods and cities." Related: Last week, LA County received $73.4 million in grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to fund 200 plus homeless services and shelter programs, according to MSNBC.
