The majority of homeless people I know, if you saw them walking down the street, you’d never even suspect that they are experiencing homelessness. Kathryn is one of them.  When we were first introduced I actually thought she may be a staff person.

I met Kathryn on Skid Row. She came to the Los Angeles Mission from Las Vegas for their women’s recovery program. Kathryn says on Skid Row you see a lot of misfortune people and it’s very sad.

Kathryn ended up on the streets after losing a job. She tried working while being homeless, and that never seemed to work out. Kathryn relocated to LA because of the resources, and she says she sees food everywhere!

Special thanks to the LA Mission
