Housing, Land Use & Transportation

Overview

Homelessness

Homelessness impacts all 58 counties in California – rural or urban, northern or southern, inland or coastal. It impacts individuals and families of every background. The causes of homelessness can be traced to a variety of problems including loss of employment, lack of affordable housing, substance abuse, and physical and mental illness. There is no one solution to this growing problem.
