Linda

Walking down Hollywood Blvd I noticed two homeless women sitting on a bench across the street.  It looked as though they had been sitting there for some time because of all the “stuff” they had with them.  Maybe they were even living there.

Linda and her sister became homeless because they don’t have enough income to pay for rent.  Linda gets social security but says it’s not enough.  KPCC produced a story recently claiming LA residents need to make $33 an hour to afford the average apartment.

It’s amazing that Linda can keep a smile on her face. She and her sister live literally on Hollywood Blvd, and I can tell you first hand the streets of Los Angeles are no place to be!
