Reduce homeless people in California

This petition had 90 supporters

The problem Los Angeles has is that our city council is not providing enough affordable housing or free housing for people who live on the streets. If our city council  were to provide more locations with free housing businesses will do better, the economy will improve.    

If the city of Los Angeles were to add more affordable housing for homeless the population of homeless people would dramatically go down by a huge percentage. And by just adding more affordable housing this would help the economy alone because it would help open jobs towards building the houses. According to Room for Improvement, by Scott Carrier the author claims making affordable housing will decrease the homeless numbers by dramatically. “Utah has decreased the number of homeless by 72 percent-largely by finding and building apartments where homeless can live permanently, with no strings attached. It's a program called Housing first” (Carrier, 2015). This means that this state was able to decrease its numbers of homelessness by 72% with the help of the program named, “Housing first.” The economy would also get better because of a program like this because it will start to open more jobs in construction.
