The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) homeless count showed Venice had a decrease in homeless population from previous year of 1006 to 889, a decrease of 11.6 percent, while the council district (CD11) had an increase of 7.2 percent to 2529. The count is always done in relation to the Federal Tract Map.
Darryl DuFay asked where are the homeless concentrated in Venice. DuFay related the figures to the federal tract map and then broke the figures down further to show if they were in a vehicle, and what type, or if they were just on the street, or had some other type of enclosure. If you want to find out how many homeless are in your area, locate you home in the tract map. Then go to the chart and read the numbers for the tract.
LAHSA has “calculated” some of the figures, such as assuming that a camper has two people, unless otherwise shown.
