Marrisa and her four children

Featured Video Play Icon

Marrisa and her four children live in Union Rescue Mission, a large homeless shelter in Skid Row. Marrisa was abused growing up and went into foster care at age 15. She now works three part-time jobs while living in a homeless shelter trying to make a future for her children.

Last night, 245 homeless children slept at Union Rescue Mission. Let that number sink in a little! That’s just one shelter. There are thousands of homeless children in Los Angeles County.

Where is the uproar and outcry from the public about all of the homeless children in America?

Special thanks to URM.
