Undercover on Skid Row

According to FOX 11, there are about 58,000 homeless people living in Los Angeles County, and over sixty percent of them are mentally ill. Thankfully, the county has a department for that! The Homeless Outreach & Mobile Engagement (HOME) team.

“We can’t solve 58,000 homeless, but we are working with those individuals who have been sitting on these bus corners for forever,” said Anthony Ruffin, a member of the HOME team.

They even invited FOX 11 along for a day, to see exactly what they see:

“The system, as it stands right now, is broken,” LA county supervisor Kathryn Barger said.
