Efforts to resolve encampments and place unhoused Angelenos inside interim and permanent housing will continue in the district and throughout the City of Los Angeles. Since December 2022, more than 21,000 Angelenos have come inside and more than 13,000 units of affordable housing are now being accelerated as a result of her executive directive to streamline their development.

“We are committed to addressing the homelessness crisis with urgency and bringing unhoused Angelenos inside,” said Mayor Karen Bass. “Through partnership with Councilmember Price, we are continuing that momentum today as we save lives in South Los Angeles.” 

“Council District 9 remains at the forefront of the citywide battle against homelessness, augmented by collaborative initiatives with Mayor Bass,” said Councilmember Curren Price. “Today, 10 lives in our community were transformed, marking another stride towards our commitment to provide our most vulnerable neighbors with safe and dignified housing. With a common purpose and a united mission, I am confident that our great City of Angels will one day be able to bring every Angeleno home.

Inside Safe supports the following five goals:

  • Reduce the loss of life on our streets.

  • Increase access to mental health and substance abuse treatment for those living in encampments.

  • Eliminate street encampments.

  • Promote long-term housing stability for people experiencing homelessness.

  • Enhance the safety and hygiene of neighborhoods for all residents, businesses and neighbors.
