Homelessness Surging in California


Massive homelessness is becoming an even worse problem in the state of California. Furthermore, the reports of moving homeless people from various cities in the state to Los Angeles, or “dumping” isn’t helping matters either.

This issue is facing nationwide attention as the numbers of Californians living in the streets continue to skyrocket.

Reviewing the Crisis in California

Drugs, homeless camps, tents, needles, and people wrapped up in blankets on the side of the road are common sights to see in the Golden State. Moreover, these occurrences are happening in various cities, although many officials in California are simply transporting the homeless to Los Angeles. Out of sight, out of mind?

Needless to say, merely transporting the homeless population into a different city does not solve the problem at hand. As a matter of fact, this exacerbates the issue in many scenarios.

“We came down here from Santa Barbara because there are more opportunities for work and it seems like there is more support here.”
