SGV 018: Homeless Crisis in Flux with Sasha Renee Perez
/

Alhambra City Councilmember Sasha Renee Perez has gone through real heartbreak when it comes to the homelessness crisis, having lost family to it. In April ‘22, LA County Supervisor Hilda Solis appointed her to the LAHSA Commission. And then LAHSA’s executive director stepped down.

That’s when SGV Weekly interviewed her about the difficult and uncertain task she’ll have on the commission (finding Marston’s replacement) as well as what housing policies she’s pushing for in Alhambra.

Then after we taped, the Board of Supervisors announced a new entity would supersede LAHSA in managing homelessness policy in the county. So we called up Supervisor Hilda Solis for some clarification on what the new agency is supposed to do, and what LAHSA and Sasha Renee Perez’ role in the transition will be. That’s right after the main interview.
