Jossalyn has lived on the streets of Los Angeles for 15 years. She sleeps any place that’s safe. Jossalyn can’t afford to pay for rent in Los Angeles with the income she gets. Jossalyn survives by panhandling and picking through garbage!
The day I first met Jossalyn, she was a little upset. While she was “dumpster diving”, someone stole the hand truck she uses to carry all of her belongings. Jossalyn told me that she needed $10 for a new hand truck. I gave her $20. A few days later I happened to run into Jossalyn again. This time with a new hand truck and a smile!
Make sure to watch to see Jossalyn’s wonderful smile when she tells me she voted yes on Prop HHH! We need to get Jossalyn and all the people experiencing homelessness off the streets and into housing!
Angelenos can help end homelessness this March 7th. Vote YES on Measure H to help end homelessness for 45,000 families and individuals across Los Angeles County within the next five years. It will also prevent homelessness for 30,000 families and individuals over the same time period, including women and children, veterans, seniors, foster youth, and survivors of domestic violence.
