On any given night in El Monte, more than 500 of our neighbors experience homelessness. Join us for the annual count organized by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority. Information is used to determine how much resources the community receives to fight homelessness.
The 2018 Count will take place on Tuesday, Jan. 23 from 8:00 p.m. to Midnight at Jack Crippen Senior Center. Get involved!
In March 2017, Los Angeles County voters approved Measure H, a 10-year quarter-cent sales tax set to generate about $355 million annually to fund homeless services and programs.
As part of efforts to involve local communities in the planning process, the Los Angeles County Homeless Initiative granted funds to municipalities to create strategic plans for addressing homelessness. The City of El Monte was recently awarded $70,000 to develop a homelessness strategic plan.
