Homelessness increased by 64+% in Long Beach since 2020

The Long Beach's Point-in-Time Survey 2023 shows 3,447 people experiencing homelessness in our city. Many are living on the streets, city shelters, and even their cars. Some include families with children. "Notably, the city saw an increase in people experiencing homelessness for the first time in 2023. While the economy has stabilized somewhat since the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, when unemployment reached 19%, city residents are now contending with inflation, rising interest rates, significant increases in the cost of housing, and the drawdown of supports that stabilized housing during the pandemic era (" 

Our services help to eliminate food insecurities, assist with medical issues, provide legal aid, provide gently used clothing, provide start-up housing goods and furniture to those just receiving housing after homelessness, and a place to turn to for a hearty and nutritious hot meal so hunger is not on the foremost of peoples minds when they are struggling to make it through the day. The people we serve daily are struggling seniors, mothers, people who work part-time, the houseless, ones who have lost everything during Covid, people who have no other means of support during their struggle. We give them hope. We have so many more programs available to those in need - and we thank our donors and volunteers for their generosity, as we are not government funded, and rely strictly on the help of people like you.
