I pray for these people however I do believe any able body man or women can rise above any situation and not be homeless even if it means getting the hell out of California. I left Atlanta and relocated to North Carolina were the cost of living is much cheaper. I live below my means and treat my savings account like a bill. When I initially relocated I was at ground zero and me and my daughter slept on the floor for one year no furniture, no television, no dishes, no curtains no electronics no nothing. I worked two jobs and slowly rose above my situation. I sacrificed and prayed to almighty God to guide and give me strength to change my situation. Most importantly I did my part by gaining employment even if I had to take a minimum wage job until I could do better. All of that experience was in 2008 as of today I still remain humble and live below my means and I am five years away from being debt free. Currently i have no car note, no credit card debt, no personal loans debt, I accelerated my mortgage and paid it off in five years. Yes it was a 30 year mortgage. I learned the secret of money Management. The key is to live below your means no matter what. I will give you an example I spend twenty three dollars per month on my social entertainment and that's it. God has already given these people the ability to change their situation and reach their fullest potential they just need to be aware of it. God bless

Hey I got a great idea let's open the borders and bring more illegals
Carol Hutchinson
We need more public housing. It's the only way. Write your member of Congress and your state representative and tell them. You can find their names and addresses online or in the phone book under government listings. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. 📝📠💻

Seriously close the books its time we took care of our own

As long as the real estate agents and home owners expect 3x the monthly income qualification to rent a place ,a person on SSI,Welfare,or making Minium Wage does not even quality for a studio apartment. And then they also expect a security deposit too which seems impossible to save.The rent is just going up every year and more and more people will be homeless every day.
ldsmith878
Not my fucking problem
Linda Dannis
WHY DO THESE LOW LIFES KEEP HAVING KIDS????? Keep your legs together and keep it zipped up!!!! I have no empathy for these people!
anna renfroe
It makes me cry. This should not be. These homeless are not there always because of something they did.
