I could sit and talk with these guys all day. Everyone wants a little attention and everyone has a story. For the most part Chet seemed happy. It was not until near the end of the interview when I asked him about his family that he saddened a little and got reflective, but only for only a moment and then went back to being jolly. You’ll find that the majority of people on the streets have some kind of “plan” to get them out of their situation. Often it is a disability claim they are waiting on. Chet in his own way describes the cost of living for people in Los Angeles and speaks a little about GR (government relief). Welfare provides a single man $218 a month. In the middle of our conversation another homeless man, who Chet says he does not know, came up and gave Chet a radio. Chet appeared to be happy that he had the doorway of an abandoned building to call home. It rained a little the night before and he was able to stay dry.

    Poor guy – has a smile and is trying the best he can with no one to help him. His health is so scary…and his daughter is a nurse who could REALLY help him. I pray to God she sees this video and helps him. He is hungry and needs medication for his heart.
