Understaning Homelessness talks with Dr. Norweeta Milburn and Earl Edwards from UCLA share their recent study co-authored with California Policy Lab colleagues Dean Obermark and Janey Roundtree: Inequity in the Permanent Supportive Housing System in Los Angeles: Scale, Scope and Reasons for Black Residents’ Return to Homelessness

A key finding shows that Black residents were 19% more likely than White residents to return to homelessness from permanent supportive housing in Los Angeles County. The higher rates of homelessness and inequitable outcomes mirror trends across the country.

The researchers talk about the reasons behind the results, which are also outlined in their report.
