Homeless Crisis Getting Worse in Richest Cities in America

BLOOMBERG / BATTLE FOR WORLD - November 21, 2018: The articles highlights the story of L., a 57-year-old anthropology professor. It was just after 10 p.m. on an overcast September night in Los Angeles, and L. was tired from a long day of class prep, teaching, and grading papers; fed her Chihuahua-dachshund mix a freeze-dried chicken strip, swapped her cigarette trousers for stretchy black yoga pants, and began to unfold a set of white sheets and a beige cotton blanket to make up her bed.

But first, she had to recline the passenger seat of her 2015 Nissan Leaf as far as it would go—that being her bed in the parking lot she had called home for almost three months. Playing on her iPad The Late Show with Stephen Colbert as she drifted off for another night. “Like sleeping on an airplane—but not in first class,” she said. That was in part by design. “I don’t want to get more comfortable. I want to get out of here.”

L., who asked to go by her middle initial for fear of losing her job, couldn’t afford her apartment rent earlier this year after failing to cobble together enough teaching assignments at two community colleges. By July she had exhausted her savings and turned to a local nonprofit called Safe Parking L.A., which outfits a handful of lots around the city with security guards, port-a-potties, Wi-Fi, and solar-powered electrical chargers. Sleeping in her car allowed her to save for a deposit on an apartment. On that night in late September, under basketball hoops owned by an Episcopal church in Koreatown, she was one of 16 people in 12 vehicles. Ten of them were female, two were children, and half were employed.

The headline of the press release announcing the results of the county’s latest homeless census strikes a note of progress: “2018 Homeless Count Shows First Decrease in Four Years.” The homeless population is still high, at 52,765—up 47 percent from 2012. Those who’d become homeless for the first time jumped 16 percent from last year, to 9,322 people, and the county provided shelter for roughly 5,000 fewer people than in 2011.

It’s most stark and visible out West, where shortages of shelter beds force people to sleep in their vehicles or on the street. The reason the situation has gotten worse is simple enough to understand, even if it defies easy solution: A toxic combo of slow wage growth and skyrocketing rents has put housing out of reach for a greater number of people. And the rising housing costs don’t predestine people to homelessness. But without the right interventions, the connection can become malignant.

The Trump administration’s proposal to hike rents on people receiving federal housing vouchers, and require they work, would only make the goals more elusive. And demand for rental assistance has long outstripped supply, leading to yearslong waits for people who want help. ...
