Monday, June 1st

New data from Riverside County’s annual 2020 Point in Time survey show the homeless youth population has increased by 41 percent and that one in five unsheltered persons reported losing their housing over the past year.

Natalie Komuro Homelessness Solutions/Deputy CEO and Luis Lopez Program Specialist for Riverside County came on the program to talk about the 2020 homeless survey.

Special attention was given this year to getting a more accurate count of homeless youth than in years past.
