The Los Angeles Times “examined more than 4,000 questionnaires taken as part of this year’s point-in-time count and found that about 76% of individuals living outside on the streets reported being, or were observed to be, affected by mental illness, substance abuse, poor health or a physical disability.”

A data rich article not to be missed……….

Editor’s Note: Homelessness is growing in our communities. Solutions need to be found that are both compassionate to the homeless and surrounding residents and businesses. WatchOurCity.com only posts images of homeless individuals in public spaces.
