Community Volunteers Needed for the 2023 Great Los Angeles Homeless Count  

Community members can register now to volunteer for the the Los Angeles Homeless Authority's (LAHSA) 2023 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count taking place in Malibu on Wednesday, January 25, 2023. 

Every year, thousands of volunteers help conduct the  Homeless Count, an annual census that counts people experiencing homelessness across Los Angeles County to inform homelessness policy decisions and better direct resources to be able to address the homelessness crisis. Community members are invited to volunteer to join the Homeless Count in Malibu. Learn more and sign up to volunteer on the LAHSA website. Volunteers under 16 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The 2022 Homeless Count, which took place on February 23, 2022, showed 81 people experiencing homelessness in Malibu, or about four individuals per square mile, a significant decrease from 2021 and 2020. City staff, Malibu’s Homeless Outreach Team from The People Concern, and community volunteers helped conduct the count on foot and in vehicles.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, LAHSA did not conduct the Homeless Count in 2021. However, an informal count performed by the Malibu Homelessness Working Group showed 157 unhoused people in Malibu. The decrease in homelessness reflects the positive results of the work by the Malibu Homeless Outreach Team since being enlisted and funded by the City in 2016, in coordination with City staff and the LASD’s Homeless Outreach Services Team (HOST). 

For questions about the Homeless Count activity in Malibu, contact Public Safety Liaison Luis Flores at 310-456-2489, ext. 236 or
