The article observes that California holds an extensive ongoing structure of social organizations that offer institutional care, residential services along with services to prevent homelessness. The Department’s Emergency Housing Assistance Program (EHAP) provides funds to address the homeless issues to social organizations with no much being done.

This document could be used to show the social organization’s inefficiency in utilizing state funds in dealing with homelessness in California. Close supervision on spending endeavors should carried out. This will assist in promoting better usage of the funds.

This article provides a perfect platform of regulating the incomes of people in California. The rich could be taxed more to reduce the ever rising income gap in the state. This additional tax can be used in addressing homelessness.
