Venice Homeless Count for Year Changes to 10 Percent Increase from 13 Percent; Other Breakdown Categories Available

The latest LAHSA figure for 2019 Venice homeless is 1075, a 10 percent increase from last year. It was reported in June to be 1101 for Venice which gave Venice a 13 percent increase. The increase for CD11 remains the same at 2284. Also a breakdown for types of disabilities and other categories became available.

The Venice Update had an article in June of last year that gave the numbers for other areas in CD11 but the breakdown for Venice categories for homeless was not available at that time.

    So now you know the truth. The manipulation, the lying and the lies that come out of CD 11 are nauseating and they border on criminal. You know how I know Mike Bonin is lying? His mouth is moving. How this absolute clown can remain in office is incomprehensible to any rational thinking adult. Venice is being decimated by this crisis and epidemic that has now become a national embarrassment. There isn’t a place in America that has failed at containing homelessness like California and specifically LA!
