LOS ANGELES, Calif. —

Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Chair Holly J. Mitchell provided the following statement on the LA Alliance Lawsuit:


“While we acknowledge that the City of Los Angeles and the LA Alliance have reached a tentative settlement agreement, we ​are concerned about the details of their plan and eagerly await their ​final agreement. I want to be clear that this does not stop the County’s on-going efforts to deliver wrap-around services in an efficient and compassionate manner ​to individuals and families experiencing homelessness. The homelessness crisis requires equitable treatment of all those experiencing this trauma first​-hand. The County will continue to pursue a resolution to this litigation that we have been deeply engaged in for over two years. I trust that it is possible to come to a consensus that distributes resources equitably, doesn’t criminalize poverty, and meets the urgent needs of the homeless population during this crisis. We will not relent and are hopeful that the County will have an effective resolution to this matter that strengthens our on-going work.”
