With January approaching, LAHSA is already hard at work planning for the 2020 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count. 

As you know, every year thousands of volunteers provide a great service to our community by hitting the streets to count our homeless neighbors throughout Los Angeles County. The results of the annual count provide a critical picture of the trends, progress, and scope of community members experiencing homelessness within the Los Angeles Continuum of Care and helps drive decision maker’s opinions about how to address our homeless crisis.

During October, Metro will be holding four outreach meetings throughout the region, including one in West Hollywood. The City of West Hollywood has, for approximately four years, been working with West Hollywood Advocates for Metro Rail (WHAM) and the All on Board Coalition to build support for the Metro rail line Northern Extension to connect the Crenshaw/LAX rail line with Mid-City, West Hollywood, and the Metro Red Line station at Hollywood & Highland in Hollywood and enhance the existing Metro regional rail network.

 

The City of West Hollywood and its coalition partners are encouraging community members to make their voices heard as momentum continues to build to accelerate the completion of the Crenshaw/LAX rail line Northern Extension to 2028, instead of 2047, in time for the Los Angeles 2028 Olympics and Paralympics

Last year, the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services received close to 700 referrals from people in our community to report allegations of sex trafficking of a child or youth under the age of 18 years old.  Though it is hard to believe, Los Angeles County is considered by the FBI to be one of the top areas in the nation where the sex trafficking of minors is a problem plaguing our society.

 

We invite community members to join us on October 23rd for free training on “The Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children: Raising Awareness and Building a Trauma-Responsive Community of Caregivers”.  This free training will explain how any youth can easily fall prey to exploiters, show participants how to identify an at-risk or victim of Commercial Sexual Exploitation, and share, through interactive and fun activities, how to apply a trauma-responsive approach to support victims towards healing and recovery. This event will also provide information on the various ways the community can support the needs of youth that have been impacted by sex trafficking
