Supervisors order early opening of winter shelters to provide refuge for homeless residents as storms roll in

“Today’s action will allow us to expedite the opening of life-saving resources in our communities,” said Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger. 

With wintry rainstorms expected to hit Los Angeles County this week, the Board of Supervisors directed the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) and County staff to move urgently to open the County’s winter shelter system early to provide refuge for homeless residents.
The shelters, originally scheduled to start operating on December 1, will begin opening on Tuesday, November 26 and will remain open through Thanksgiving Day and Friday, November 29.

By Friday, up to 13 locations providing hundreds of beds will be open to those in need of refuge.
