Devine

Devine was born and raised in California. He left the Golden State to chase love, a decision Devine says now was a mistake. After his mother passed away, Devine decided to come home to connect back with his California roots, and because of the high cost of living Devine ended up homeless on Venice Beach.

In this interview, Devine shares about life, love, and homelessness. He feels that homelessness is not something people should end up feeling comfortable with and getting used to. I agree but what happens is after a person tries and tries to get off the streets and receives no help, learned helplessness sits in. Devine is fairly new to life on the streets. He’s still trying. I hope he finds a path out before he gets stuck like so many others.
