2009 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count
Tuesday night marks the beginning of Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority's(LAHSA) three-night homeless count and they are calling on more than 3000 volunteers to help. The biennial count is the biggest in the nation and is crucial for providing data needed for funding and addressing housing issues. There is still time to sign up, and not to worry, no one counts alone.
