8,608 Volunteers + 166 Deployment Sites + 4 Days

The Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count, organized by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, brought together 8,608 volunteers for three nights and one morning aimed to help better understand the scope of the homelessness crisis throughout Los Angeles County.

United Way of Greater Los Angeles hosted a special morning count session that brought volunteers to Union Station. After an invigorating training session, volunteers rode the Metro Los Angeles together to count our homeless neighbors in LA Metro stations and platforms.

The data collected will help the County make better informed decisions and creative solutions on how to help our most vulnerable neighbors. The L.A. Homeless Count is more than just essential data collection — each person has a story to tell and the community truly came together to listen and help.

Stay tuned for updates and results.
