Initiative to Reduce Homelesness
The Gateway Cities Council of Governments is leading an effort to address homelessness within our region. By action of the Board of Directors, policy direction was given to seek funding and collaboration in developing a plan to advance individuals from homelessness to a stabilized and productive life. Existing models of success have been identified in the work of the Gateway Cities Ad Hoc Committee on Homelessness. Certain programs within our region and elsewhere in Los Angeles County have a success record as high as 80% in moving an individual from being homeless to being stable and productive for over 3 years. The Gateway Cities COG appreciates the cooperation and partnership of the County of Los Angeles in making the homeless initiative a reality.
