Man on Sunset Blvd

Homeless Special

On any given night, 47,000 men, women, and children live on the streets of Los Angeles – sleeping in tents, cars, on sidewalks, and in emergency shelters. The enormity of the homeless crisis led SoCal Connected to ask the difficult questions: How do we create more affordable housing? Are we willing to pay for critical services such as mental health counseling, medical care, job training, and alcohol/drug rehab programs? With limited resources available, how do we decide who gets helped first? And how do we prevent more people from ending up on the streets every day? And the most critical question, can we really end homelessness in Los Angeles and show everyone “The Way Home.” This one-hour special will air Tues. Feb. 28 at 8 p.m. PT. In addition, the public will have an opportunity to participate in a Facebook Live discussion on Fri. Feb. 24 from 1:30-3p.m. PT by going to KCET's Facebook page.
