En Español 


LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass today announced the latest Inside Safe operation in Hollywood on Sunset Boulevard in partnership with Councilmember Hugo Soto-Martinez and Los Angeles County Supervisor Lindsey Horvath. More than 30 Angelenos voluntarily moved inside with access to supportive services from this operation. This long standing encampment was located against Sunset Sound recording studio, which impacted the studio’s operations and other businesses in the neighborhood.

“This week’s Inside Safe operations in Hollywood and near Koreatown continue the work to urgently bring unhoused Angelenos inside and save lives,” said Mayor Karen Bass. “I want to thank Supervisor Horvath, Councilman Soto-Martinez and our service provider partners for their work to lock arms to address this crisis head on.”

Yesterday, Inside Safe conducted its 50th operation in Windsor Square near the corner of 6th Street and Van Ness Avenue. Between the two operations, more than 35 Angelenos were brought inside this week.

“Many people living at this encampment have been in the same area on the street for over five years, and now they are finally able to move into housing because of Inside Safe,” said Los Angeles City Councilmember Hugo Soto-Martinez. “With 100% of unhoused residents accepting services and housing through this operation, we are proving that when we do the hard work to find sustainable housing solutions, we can bring folks off the streets for good.”

“Today's Inside Safe at Sunset Sound demonstrates that we can successfully bring people inside when the County, City, and community come together in our shared mission to solve our homelessness crisis,” said Los Angeles County Supervisor Lindsey P. Horvath. “I’m grateful for the partnership of the Mayor’s Office, Councilmember Soto-Martinez, the Sunset Sound team, PATH, LAHSA, and the County’s Homeless Initiative and Department of Mental Health for their all-hands-on-deck response that our homelessness emergency requires.”

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, LAHSA and service provider organizations. 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.
