Chris says Skid Row is a trap. Lots of people come to Skid Row for the resources yet easily get caught up in the madness of the streets. Once a person gets seduced by Skid Row’s darker side, more often than not, their life is destroyed.
Ten years ago Chris got into some trouble in his home town and jumped on a bus to Los Angeles. He says he only had to walk two blocks before he got caught up with the wrong crowd – again, and that lasted right up until he went into the Los Angeles Mission.
Chris is one of the lucky ones. He now has ten months sober and has dreams of becoming a barber or a counselor helping others.
Special thanks to the Los Angeles Mission
