51,000+, was the count last year. What is the benefit of a recount?
Cassandra Morris January 20, 2012 at 03:23 pm
Hi Malcolm- The benefits of a homeless census are similar to those of a general population census.Read More The numbers provide info used to determine the allocation of resources- mainly for housing and services specifically for the homeless. Los Angeles County receives federal grant money to provide these services, and the grant requires a biennial count of homeless people & families. The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority also uses the data in hopes of preventing people and families from becoming homeless in the future.

Hi Cassandra: I understand. Thanks for the explanation, however I didn't expect a reply to myRead More comment. So the 'allocation of resources' changes every year and new counts must be made. Seems like the cost of time and energy would dictate maybe a recount every few years instead of annually. Don't reply to this one. Not important enough to get a dialog going. You are doing a good job so have a good week and keep up the good work.
