Mission

SPALA will educate LA City city residents about the LA Safe Parking ordinance for homeless vehicle dwellers while supporting those vehicle owners or other engaged persons experiencing homelessness themselves.

Purpose

We will educate the public as there are 1,200 people experienceing homelessness while living in their vehicles in LA city and 1,500 more in LA county outside of LA city. Each city council district is going to be responsible for sitting 80-150 parking spots (public and private) to accommodate those 1,200 persons. The city is going to need help to locate those parking spots within businesses, places of faith and public lots. The Safe Parking guidelines and manual which will be part of the program will need explaining and support.
