The National Coalition for the Homeless unfairly ranked Los Angeles as the "fourth-meanest city" for the homeless (Aug. 6). The past year has, in fact, been a historic watershed for homeless services in Los Angeles. Ten elected officials have formally launched a 10-year plan to end homelessness. Local discretionary funding for homeless services almost doubled. City officials expanded a temporary winter program to a year-round emergency program, adding 860 much-needed beds throughout the city.
