There has never been a more lucrative time for public funding intended to get people off the streets, yet the number of unhoused individuals rose in Long Beach by a startling 62% in the last two years.
Why has it been so hard to get people into permanent housing?
Our reporters dig deep to find the answer to this critical question and more in the Post’s new investigative series, Locked Out: Homelessness in Long Beach, live now at lbpost.com/investigations.
Producing this type of deep dive, multi-part journalism isn’t free––projects like this require additional hours and resources.
