L.A. County Gets Trailers For the Homeless

The city of Los Angeles is welcoming 30 state-owned trailers sent by Gov. Gavin Newsom to help with Los Angeles County's growing homelessness crisis.

According to CBS Los Angeles, these 30 trailers were previously used by Camp Fire first responders. As of Friday morning, they are now in South Los Angeles to temporarily house ten homeless families, or up to 35 people.

CBS reports that these travel trailers were sent to a parking lot at Broadway and 85th Street in the Florence neighborhood. The fully-equipped trailers were requested last month by L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas.

As seen in the video, the trailers come with a family dining table, a kitchen equipped with appliances (stove, microwave, oven and refrigerator), a television, a bunk bed and another bigger bed. The city plans to use these trailers as temporary housing solutions for the families.

According to a report by the L.A. Homeless Services Authority, there are nearly 59,000 homeless people in the county, which is a 12% increase from 2018.

CBS adds that another ten trailers are expected to arrive in South L.A. later this month.
