State Auditor: California Doing A Poor Job On Homelessness
California is doing a poor job of sheltering the nation's largest homeless population and needs to provide statewide leadership to address the problem, the state auditor said Thursday in a report that also singled out problems with homeless services in Los Angeles County. California has approximately 134,000 homeless people, about 24 percent of the nation's total homeless population, and Los Angeles County has the most within the state, an audit summary said. (4/19)
