Homeless numbers fall in LA County, but in San Fernando, San Gabriel valleys and South Bay, it’s a different story

After three years of growing homelessness, the population of people without a permanent or stable roof over their heads in Los Angeles County fell by 3 percent to 53,195 people, according to the results of this year’s homeless count. But some communities, the San Fernando Valley, the South Bay and the San Gabriel Valley, saw their local homeless numbers rise.
