California has the largest rate of homelessness with almost half of entire U.S. unhoused community living in this state. It is no surprise that Los Angeles County, due to its size, is the county with the largest unhoused population. In 2020, 66,436 people were found to be living on the street in tents, makeshift dwellings, and vehicles across L.A. County during LAHSA”s Homeless Count.
