"Nobody Needs to be Homeless"

About Homeless

In 2015, a group of Whittier community members took notice and concern with the spike in community neighbors without a place to call home. Understanding that the number of people experiencing homelessness had risen dramatically across the Los Angeles area (and indeed the state), text & social media messages, and coffee meetings resulted in a small group of men and women from Whittier coming together to announce a community meeting in October of 2015. With the goal being more than simply a meeting, but a catalytic and collaborative moment that unites under a common interest and pooling of ideas & resources, the word “Consortium” was chosen to represent the event and the Whittier Consortium on Homelessness emerged. The October 2015 meeting was slated to accommodate 40-60 people.
