The City of Los Angeles is home to more than 40,000 unhoused Angelenos on any given night. We must never forget that this isn’t merely a number - we are talking about 40,000 men, women, and children, each of whom deserves to live a life of dignity and respect. But there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution to this crisis as each individual’s journey into - and out of - homelessness is different, and requires a personalized array of support services. Hear from Alexander Townsend, who previously made an underpass under the 10 freeway home. Through his journey from the streets to housing, Alexander represents the opportunity inherent in establishing a Right to Housing across the City of Los Angeles.
