Proposition HHH is the most important and significant effort to end homelessness we have ever made. It would allow the City of Los Angeles to issue $1.2 billion in bonds over the next decade to build 10,000 units of housing for people who are homeless or on the brink of homelessness.
Homelessness in Los Angeles is an unprecedented crisis, and the city and county have developed comprehensive, multi-faceted plans to address it. There are strategies to prevent people from becoming homelessness, and strategies to help move people off the streets and into homes. None of those strategies work unless we have more housing.
In recent years, Los Angeles has become a city of encampments and shanties, with tens of thousands of people living on our sidewalks or in their cars. We can’t solve homelessness with wishful thinking, with magic, or by calling LAPD. We can solve it by providing housing – and HHH allows us to invest in a solution with a 90% success rate. If we do not approve HHH, the number of encampments in our neighborhoods will grow, and people will suffer and die on our streets.
