Hahn Applauds Reduction in Homelessness in Long Beach

Hahn joined Mayor Rex Richardson and volunteers for the 2024 Homeless Count in January

Sacramento, CA—Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn is applauding news that for the first time in nearly a decade, homelessness in the City of Long Beach has decreased according to Homeless Count results released this morning. The 2024 count shows 3,376 people experiencing homelessness in Long Beach, a 2.1% decrease from last year—the first time the City has reported an overall decrease in homelessness since 2017.

Supervisor Hahn released the following statement:

“Time and time again, Long Beach has been willing to embrace solutions to homelessness and it is paying off. They stepped up during the pandemic to transform motels into shelter, they have welcomed permanent supportive housing, and they were one of the first cities I partnered with when we launched the Pathway Home encampment resolution program last year. Under the leadership of Mayor Rex Richardson, the City has treated this crisis with the urgency it demands.

“This decrease is great news, not only for Long Beach, but for the County as we work to turn the tide of the homelessness crisis with compassionate, effective solutions. We’re going to keep going.”
