ULI Los Angeles is tackling the city’s grave homelessness problem. The organization has completed an extensive report on homelessness, focusing on the development of temporary housing for the unsheltered, and has developed a set of key recommendations with the goal of reducing the homeless population by 50%. ULI is currently working with the Mayor’s office to put its recommendations—which include establishing 60 housing sites city-owned land, reclaiming public spaces for general use, investing in scattered site permanent supportive housing, encouraging design and streamlining approvals—into action and create temporary housing options throughout the city. Using this research, ULI has gathered a team to work with the city on a program called A Bridge Home, which will build safe shelters to house homeless people in transition. We sat down with Marty Borko, executive director at ULI, to talk about the organization’s research on homelessness and the path forward to developing more shelters.
