End Homelessness in Whittier

This petition had 70 supporters

Homelessness has steadily increased in Whittier even as our economy has begun to recover from a recession.  The City provides funding support to the homeless through its Social Services Commission, which makes grants to local nonprofits. However, the amount of funding it provides has decreased in recent years.

County voters recently passed Measure H, a sales tax increase for homeless services.  This follows approval by City of Los Angeles voters of Measure HHH, which intends to address the 13,000 housing unit shortfall by building permanent supportive housing for the chronically homeless.

The City of Whittier, however, lacks a comprehensive plan to address homelessness.  The City must take a stand, pledge to end homelessness and create a comprehensive plan for housing the chronically homeless.
