Los Angeles has the biggest homeless veteran population in the nation. Los Angeles also has one of the lowest rates of sheltering the homeless compared to other major cities like New York City, Seattle, and San Francisco. That means thousands of homeless veterans are left without a roof over their head and no jobs.
According to a press release from the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System in May 2018, Los Angeles County saw an 18 percent decline in veteran homelessness compared to 2017. But the work is far from done. Many veterans are still struggling to find jobs and homes, while battling PTSD and other disabilities.
The Clean Team LA is dedicated to helping veterans obtain jobs that get them back on their feet-- and back into permanent housing. We may play a small role in solving this big problem, but we hope to inspire the community of Los Angeles to come together and support this cause.
We thank you for supporting U.S. military veterans and helping to make a difference in your local community.
