Had John K. Horn's car not been stolen eight years ago, he might never have become an advocate for the homeless. "I look at it as kind of fate," said Horn, chairman of the San Fernando Valley Homeless Coalition, composed of about 50 agencies and individuals who aid the homeless. "I had no interest in working with the homeless." Horn was a political-science student at Cal State Northridge and about to start an internship at the Ventura County Courthouse when he found himself without a car.

The San Fernando Valley Homeless Coalition reflects a broad spectrum of agencies who provide a variety of services assisting the homeless. These agencies-providers are the bridge between the haves--the housed--and the have-nots--the homeless. Every day the workers at these agencies experience directly the pain and losses of homeless men, women and children. They see the festering of the social wounds which remain untreated. No longer can we, as these providers, ignore the underlying problem of lack of affordable housing.

In an effort to help homeless people who discourage customers from shopping along Sepulveda Boulevard, businesses have begun distributing information cards that direct the disadvantaged to health, food and emergency housing services. The laminated cards, called Homeless Emergency Help Cards, are printed in English and Spanish and offer telephone numbers for more than a dozen social-services agencies.

About a dozen homeless people who died in the San Fernando Valley this year will be memorialized at Sepulveda United Methodist Church. "It is important that we no longer forget that homeless people have lived and died in our backyard," said John Horn, chairman of the San Fernando Valley Homeless Coalition. "These are people who are homeless, who didn't have a direct connection to their families. They had friends who were homeless and didn't have the funds to provide them with a proper burial."

If what some city politicians are calling for becomes a reality, Los Angeles could someday have the nation's toughest laws aimed at abusive panhandlers. The proposal would make it illegal for panhandlers to touch, follow, swear at or threaten people who refuse to give them a handout. In some cases, beggars could be cited for sitting or leaning on public property or being too close to private property.
