“The issue of homelessness in Los Angeles is complex, and we know that addressing this issue takes urgency, coordination and partnership,” said Mayor Karen Bass. “Partnership is essential if we are to create real, long-term solutions, especially at the local level, in order to address the complexity of this national crisis. I am pleased to be Councilwoman Park and Councilmember Soto-Martinez’s partner on the Inside Safe initiative to support proven, community-driven solutions to homelessness in LA.” 

 I'm proud to collaborate once more with Mayor Bass on today’s Inside Safe Operation and I extend my congratulations to her for the achievement of this 49th citywide operation," said Councilwoman Traci Park. “The West LA community has voiced the need for an intervention here, and it's important to see more individuals move from the streets to indoor spaces. I look forward to continuing this momentum in moving our homeless population indoors and having safe and accessible sidewalks for everyone."

“Thank you to Mayor Bass for proving time and again through these Inside Safe operations that when we invest in housing solutions, we can bring people inside off the streets,” said Councilmember Hugo Soto-Martinez.

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.
