Yes on Prop HHH - Homes, Help, Hope.

Homelessness in Los Angeles has risen dramatically in recent years, and it is one of the great challenges facing our city. Unless we take collective action the situation will only worsen.

That’s why Public Counsel supports Proposition HHH this November. Prop HHH will give us the resources to provide our homeless neighbors a safe place to live, and provides crucial support services and treatment.

Permanent supportive housing is a proven solution to chronic homelessness, with local success rates exceeding 90%. Additionally, providing housing is 43% less costly than simply leaving men and women on the street – where they often require expensive emergency room visits and hospitalizations – not to mention housing is infinitely more humane.

Here’s what a YES on Prop HHH provides:

  • $1.2 billion for safe, clean housing
  • Facilities for mental health, drug and alcohol treatment
  • Facilities for housing assistance
  • Strict oversight and independent audits of funding
