Los Angeles Board of Supervisors recently approved an effort to enhance the County’s ability to address the homelessness crisis by establishing an accountability framework to ensure shelter or housing for everyone ready and willing to receive these services.
Community advocates, business leaders and nonprofit service providers came together in support of this effort, including ACOF’s Board member, Philip N. Feder. “As a board member of A Community of Friends, a nonprofit organization that builds affordable housing, we applaud the Supervisors’ effort to end homelessness. More needs to be done to provide for the right of all individuals to permanent housing and the obligation of the state and federal governments to provide the funding and to end bureaucratic hurdles to building that housing.”
