2021 E.R. Brown Symposium: Opening Doors for All: Improving Health in Housing and Homelessness
California is home to more than a quarter of the country's homeless population. In early 2020, 161,548 people experienced homelessness in California on any given day, a 40% increase over the last five years. The COVID-19 pandemic has further exacerbated the public health crisis faced by people experiencing homelessness: housing security is a major determinant of health. There are no simple solutions to ending homelessness: the crisis is vast and complex, requiring well-coordinated systems, flexibility in approach, and implementation of individual-level interventions that support and house the most vulnerable Californians.

Join the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research as we bring together public health leaders, community advocates, policymakers, and other leaders to help identify past successes and lessons learned, so that we can invest effectively with evidence-based solutions to create a healthier, more prosperous California.
