Homelessness is a prevalent issue in our society. In fact, in the Los Angeles County alone there is "nearly 5900 homeless." According to BigThink, "in 2015, the city council declared the homeless problem to be a state of emergency, allocating $100 million to housing and training citizens." As you get off the 105 freeway (Wilmington Ave) you may have noticed big White Tents. Mayor Garcetti has initiated homeless shelters where they are able to receive food, good nights rest, and showers. My petition is to raise awareness that we need to combat of homelessness issue face on. It is not the time for a temporary fix. We must come together to show Mayor Garcetti that we are aware of our homeless population and we must help them. The homeless population has been increasing over the past year, in fact, it has had a 16% increase. We need more shelters to accommodate men and women who are suffering on the streets. Thank You.
