Maria and her fiance ended up losing their apartment because of a high utility bill. The day I met Maria, they had been living in a Sacramento tent city for three days. They were ‘camping’ on the streets but received a ticket for being homeless. Since this interview, everyone in this tent city has been evicted.
Maria shares with us what a day is like being homeless. They get up early to go to a park and get a lunch ticket. They split up to go to different homeless services for showers. Basically, their whole day is filled just trying to survive.
Maria’s 1st wish was for her unborn baby. She’s living homeless three months pregnant. She says they are moving into a new place. Knowing that Safe Ground was forced to move I pray they did find housing.
Special thanks to Safe Ground
