Los Angeles County is the homeless capital of the United States, with about 74,000 people living on the street or in temporary housing on any given night. This doesn’t count the 6,000 homeless people in jail or hospitals. Contrary to popular belief, most of the county’s homeless people lived in the region before they became homeless. One third are chronically homeless; veterans make up about 12%.
