When I asked Dustin about homelessness in Los Angeles her responded “wet, cold, sucks, and everybody hates you.” That’s an accurate description actually.

Dustin is homeless in Hollywood. The night before he slept under an overhang because it was raining. Dustin says that he applied for a job online and it turns out it was an identity scam. By the time Dustin found out, he was $100,000 in debt and crashed back into homelessness.
