LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass announced an Inside Safe operation in Hollywood near Franklin Village in partnership with Councilmember Hugo Soto-Martinez. More than 20 Angelenos moved off the street and were brought inside from this week’s operation. Click here for photos and b-roll of the operation.

“During this Inside Safe operation, more than 20 unhoused Angelenos voluntarily agreed to come inside with supportive services,” said Mayor Karen Bass. “We continue our commitment to address the homelessness crisis with urgency across the City Los Angeles. I appreciate Councilmembers Hugo Soto-Martinez and Katy Yaroslavsky continued coordination and partnership to help L.A.’s most vulnerable communities.” 

“Hollywood needs more resources to address the homelessness crisis, and we are proud to partner with the Mayor’s office to make that happen," said Los Angeles City Councilmember Hugo Soto-Martinez. "Because of the coordination and weeks of outreach by our team, the Mayor’s office, service providers, and other government agencies, dozens of people will be able to have the comfort and security of a roof over their heads tonight.”

Last week, Inside Safe housed Angelenos living in an encampment that had been near the intersection of South Wilton Place and West Olympic Boulevard for more than five years. The operation was executed in partnership with Councilmember Katy Yaroslavsky and local organizations including the Koreatown Youth & Community Center (KYCC).

“I am deeply grateful to Mayor Bass, LAHSA, and the city departments involved in last week’s Inside Safe operation,” said Councilwoman Yaroslavsky. “Across the City, we are finally beginning to see real progress around homelessness for the first time in years. And that is because as a city, we are investing in programs that actually work.”

In 2023, tent encampments came down in every council district, and thousands more Angelenos came inside than in 2022 thanks to action locking arms with the City Council, County and LAHSA. The Mayor has worked to improve services provided for unhoused Angelenos coming inside and has also been vocal about the need to make homelessness programs more cost effective as this urgent work continues.
