Things werent great before COVID-19, but at least only about 570 families, hungry, broke and on the brink of homelessness, needed help from the volunteers at St. Joseph Center in Los Angeles.
Today, that number is about 860. A month from now, it could be in the thousands or even more.
California is rapidly approaching what has been dubbed the eviction cliff, or the point where true protection from being evicted during the pandemic will fall away, at least for a short time. If that happens, as many as 1 million families across the state some 365,000 in Los Angeles County alone could find themselves at risk of being forced out of their homes, perhaps as soon as September.
By some estimates, tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of people with no jobs and no safety net to fall back on could become homeless...

Oh Well does not cut it....
“no safety net” = illegals
They wont let people work. How can we pay rent if we cant work. Its so insane.
Yes Im working thank God but there but for the grace of God...our government here is so vile.
Of course I think evictions should still be legal since landlords still have to pay all their expenses. And so on. Banks will fold if they dont get mortgage payments.
This is all at the foot of the state. What a reprehensible bunch. Yes I know the majority of California voted for them.
Sounds like a renter’s market.
What a travesty. A country/state giving itself a self inflicted wound. It’d be like sticking your hand in a meat grinder.
What would Solomon do ?
Safety nets are here for American citizens.
We can’t afford to safety net all of Mexico and the southern hemisphere.
Yeah. The logic is so clear.
Explain, again, why all Communists/Antifa/BLM/Democrats can't be butchered. It's not like they are human.
Id actually like to see part of CA go back to Mexico.
then Sultans of Swing (Alchemy Live)
thanks for the nice little side trip
It’s particularly galling when you realize Mexico is the richest country in Latin America. I despise Mexico and it’s people. They pull billions out of this nations economy after flooding in here and receiving taxpayer funded free health care and education.
Only if they pay us for it. We bought California (and western states) with cash and forgiveness of Mexican debt. We didn't steal it.
Not always. It often means working poor who on paper do not qualify for assistance and who live paycheck to paycheck. This is a result of so many small businesses being forced to shutter during the lock down.
He cuts the governor in half?
I they had a job before lockdown, and are a legal resident or citizen, they are receiving very generous unemployment payments and eligible for the myriad other programs.
It’s the illegals that have no safety net.
