"There is no greater issue facing the city of Los Angeles than Homelessness and there are few organizations with as much depth, expertise and comprehensive capability as The Salvation Army," said Andrew Jameson, Chair of The Salvation's Army LA Metropolitan Advisory Board. "It is my hope that this symposium can stimulate productive, engaging and even disruptive conversation between thought leaders in the public and private sectors as we continue to confront and find ways to resolve this crisis."

Added Captain Sean Kelsey, The Salvation Army's Los Angeles Metro Coordinator, "We are excited to bring together some of the most influential leaders in the public and private sectors to discuss the problems of homelessness, but more importantly, pursue solutions to one of the greatest humanitarian crises that the city of Los Angeles has ever experienced."
