Harold and Stacy

Harold and Stacy along in with their three kids and pets will be sleeping in the car behind them. A greedy landlord caused their homelessness which is far too common in Los Angeles these days. As housing costs rise, landlords now often force out older tenants so they can raise the rent.

The family used what savings they had to stay in a hotel but that money ran out. Tonight will be the first night they have to sleep in their vehicle.

Harold has cancer and suffers from diabetes. He cannot work. Harold’s last wish was a place to stay until the breath is out of his body. Mobile homelessness is growing all over Los Angeles County and everywhere.
