Housing and Homelessness

Learn more about LWV California's and the National League's position and research on this issue.


The League supports equal opportunity in housing. From Meeting Basic Human Needs (everyone should have a safe place to live) to land use and transportation to climate change, this is an issue that affects all parts of the state and a large number of our positions. Needs are different in different areas. Some have a greater need for permanent supportive housing for the formerly homeless while others need homelessness prevention -- family housing or senior housing but all areas need state (and federal) support to meet unmet needs. This is recommended as an area for education as well as advocacy during the next biennium 2019-2021.
