HOMELESS POPULATION

There are an estimated 100 million homeless people worldwide.  In Los Angeles County alone, there are over 57,000 homeless men, women, and children.  In 2015, Los Angeles topped the nation in chronic homelessness, with over 12,000.  The government classifies disabled people who go without housing for a year, or who land in the street several times over three years, as chronically homeless.  These individuals are the most vulnerable and visible.  Men make up 80% of the homeless population, and nearly 40% of the overall homeless population has some certification or degree related to skilled labor.
