LOS ANGELES (AP) — Social workers will be visiting the Occupy Los Angeles camp this week in an effort to provide services to the influx of homeless people who have moved into the tent village surrounding City Hall.

Organizer Darren Danks said Monday that the 485-tent camp has established a committee to deal with the needs of the chronically homeless, who comprise about 7 percent of the campers.

Occupy Los Angeles has a policy of not turning anyone away from sleeping at the site or grabbing a free meal at its food tent, but a Sunday posting on its website stated “it should be remembered that Occupy Los Angeles has no mandate to serve the homeless.”

Danks says organizers are undecided whether to limit serving meals to those who are contributing to the camp.
