The average LOT persons remained homeless increased 28% from 2019 to 2020 fiscal year.

 

  • Emergency Shelters (Measure 1a – Metric 1.1):
    Average LOT homeless of 74 bed nights in the 2020 fiscal year
    (an increase of 16 bed nights or 27.6% from the 2019 fiscal year)
  • Emergency Shelters and Transitional Housing (Measure 1a – Metric 1.2):
