I also live in Santa Ana and the amount of homeless people here is insane. They have been picking up the homeless in Long Beach and dropping them here.
Shame on us. Now we are slaves of nameless "investors".

You have to take Government numbers like that with a grain of salt. I came back home in 1990 when my Father's health went bad. At the time I was working contracts for an aerospace service company. After my father passed away, I decided to stay and help out my family. When I went to the state employment office, I was declared to be a "Homeless Veteran" because I was staying with my Mother.
When my younger sister had her daughter, for the purpose of the Department of Public Welfare, she and her daughter were declared to be homeless even though they lived with me.
The idea behind this is to broaden the definition of homeless, to make a problem appear worse than it actually is, so that the Government Department or Agency can get more funding.

I have a 4br 2ba 2000 sqft home I pay 1100 a month for. My brother rents a 2br 2ba 1200 sqft apartment for $900 and this is all in the city.
