In order to immediately begin bringing Angelenos off the street, Mayor Bass launched Inside Safe – a bold city-wide, voluntary, proactive housing-led strategy to bring people inside from tents and encampments, and to prevent encampments from returning. Some of the encampments that have been addressed have existed in neighborhoods for years. Inside Safe operations are completed in collaboration with members of the Los Angeles City Council, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, and a wide array of service providers. It is one feature in a comprehensive strategy to confront the homelessness crisis that in the first year of the Bass administration, brought more than 21,000 Angelenos inside.
