Location : LA Child Guidance Clinic 3787 S. Vermont Avenue "The Committee has a goal to Eliminate racial disparities impacting Black people experiencing homelessness by ensuring racial equity within the homeless crisis response system.
Over the course of six months, the Committee learned from experts, service providers, youth, adults with lived experience, and other community members. Monthly meetings included presentations and materials on a wide range of disciplines, including: relevant demographics and an exploration into how the current homeless crisis response system impacts Black people experiencing homelessness, from outreach, assessment, and interim housing, to permanent housing and retention. The Committee also explored other systems that impact homelessness, such as the child welfare system, criminal justice system, employment, as well as public and affordable housing more broadly." #LA #Black #AfricanAmerican #People #Allies #Housing #Homelessness #Solutions #institutions #Racism #Oppression #History #LA #california #usa - 6 hours ago
