Your Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessness calls for permanent, affordable housing to end the homeless crisis in the county, but your recommended budget commits zero dollars to this plan.

And the crisis is getting worse. In the last two years, homelessness in the county has risen by 8 percent, and more than half are living outdoors.

You've said you can't afford it, but the truth is you can't afford not to. Ending homelessness would actually save taxpayers dollars, according to a new cost study by UC Irvine.

We can't end homelessness without county funding.
