What would you do if you were homeless, being evicted from tent city, and thought that jail was your best option?

Welcome to Eve’s world.

She’d been homeless for four years. I met her last week in Sacramento’s infamous tent city. The morning I met her, the police had showed up, tore down a tent, and told the people in the area if they are still there the next day they will be hauled off to jail. The prospect of being separated from her homeless community had her so worried that Eve told me off camera that jail didn’t sound like such a bad option.

I cannot help but wonder where Eve is today and what her future will be.

Eve is the second story from my trip to Sacramento. You can view the first story and meet Chris here.
