Long Beach business owners field complaints of poor treatment by homeless

Long Beach has the fourth highest rate of unsheltered homeless people for major cities in the nation, according to a 2013 government report. The growing tension between the homeless population in Long Beach and nearby businesses has become a contentious issue in downtown Long Beach; community stakeholders recently hosted a panel on the topic. “People keep saying [the problem] is ‘unsolvable,’ but I know many people who work with the homeless and know exactly what they need. They just need to tap those resources.” More on this issue, in a story on Voicewaves.
