Burbank Homeless Statistics


What is the City doing to help the homeless?

Homelessness is never solved by one entity; therefore, City departments continue to work together with local nonprofits, the business community, and faith-based/charitable organizations to deliver services and find solutions to homelessness.

The following are a few examples of measured investments that have created a positive return for Burbank.  However, much more is needed in order to address the increasing number of homeless in Burbank and their service needs.

  • Creating long-term solutions   
  • Leveraging the City’s public resources in support of homeless projects and programs   
  • Providing comprehensive supportive services
