The Architecture of Homelessness, Los Angeles
More than one in five people who are homeless in the United States live in California
Two-thirds of all people experiencing homelessness in California are unsheltered
Within Los Angeles County, approximately 50,000-60,000 people may be found homeless on any given night
Los Angeles, along with many other California cities, enact “Quality of Life” laws that criminalize (1) standing, sitting, and resting in public places; (2) sleeping, camping, and lodging in public places, including in vehicles; (3) begging and panhandling; and (4) food sharing, placing even more pressure on people in already precarious conditions.
