OC Supervisor Katrina Foley Launches Districtwide Homeless Count

Orange County’s newly-elected Supervisor Katrina Foley is launching a first-of-its-kind survey and audit of unhoused individuals in her district. The audit will begin July 14 and will cost around $72,000, paid for through discretionary funds.

“We want to get a better picture,” Foley told KNX1070. “We want to identify gaps in service and where we need to improve.”

Foley, a Democrat, was elected in March to represent District 2. She beat out former county supervisor and state senator John Moorlach for the seat, which was vacated after Republican Michelle Steel was elected to Congress.

District 2 includes the areas of Costa Mesa, Cypress, Huntington Beach, La Palma, Los Alamitos, Newport Beach, Seal Beach, Stanton, the unincorporated area of Rossmoor, and parts of Buena Park and Fountain Valley.
