Kriz: Thirty More People “Without Fixed Abode” Died in OC in June, in 2019 Before the Pandemic 13 Had Died

Thirty additional people “without fixed abode” died in OC in June, in 2019 before the pandemic the number was 13. For the year so far, 185 have passed away, in 2019 only 98 had died at this point. So this continues to be a terrible year. Action is happening but not yet nearly at the scale or pace to quickly bring an end to this continuing tragedy.
