According to numbers released by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority yesterday, homelessness in Los Angeles County has risen by about 6 percent.
But one group in particular stands out... women. Since 2013 they've accounted for the majority increase in homelessness in the city of LA. And there are currently about 15,000 homeless women in the city of LA alone.
Anne Miskey is the CEO of the Downtown Women's Center and she joins Ben Bergman in the studio to talk about the different needs of homeless women and how they need to be addressed.
