Union Station Homeless Services

Founded in 1973 Union Station Homeless Services is the San Gabriel Valley’s largest social service agency assisting homeless and very low-income adults and families. 

"Our core services include outreach, bridge housing, permanent housing, and employment. In addition, we offer basic needs such as meals and showers, care coordination, benefits enrollment, and referrals to medical and mental health services." 

 

Unhoused Black Lives Matter

Racial Disparities in Homelessness

The homeless crisis in Los Angeles and nationwide is a symptom of a vast network of causes including a lack of affordable housing, poverty, healthcare inequality, incarceration, segregation, and systemic racism. These factors all disproportionately impact the Black community, resulting in Black people representing 34% of unhoused people in Los Angeles despite making up only 8% of the population. We can no longer passively support racial justice we must take action and demand policies that will definitively establish racial equity in Los Angeles and beyond.
