State Steps Up in Fight Against Homelessness

Statement by Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas on Governor Gavin Newsom’s Proposal to Double State Spending on Homelessness to $1 Billion

“Leadership matters. With initial data pouring in from across the State indicating that this crisis is getting worse, not better, it’s great to see that the Governor is not just talking the talk, but walking the walk. Combatting homelessness requires not just resolve but investment. Los Angeles County is building a robust safety net th‎rough Measure H, and these additional dollars will be a game changer in our mission to get Everyone In.”
