For months the LA County Board of Supervisors and LA’s City Council have been going back and forth on a series of homeless initiatives to address the region’s fast growth of homelessness.

Tomorrow, they’ll be asked to approve the Homeless Initiative plan, a far-reaching umbrella including 47 recommended strategies to reduce homelessness. Despite the plan’s proposed $150 million tab, some homeless advocates say it won’t provide enough immediate relief.

Rev. Andy Bales, CEO of Union Rescue Mission in downtown LA’s Skid Row
