Tera and her son Ramin

Tera and her children have lived without a home in Los Angeles for the last three years. When they first became homeless, the family stayed with whoever would let them. “Couch surfing” is never easy. The kids always sleep on the floor. You never know when you’ll be asked to leave. Freedom or privacy is rare. It’s stressful for everyone!

For the last year, Tera and her children have been staying in shelters. Navigating the social support system is not easy, but the biggest roadblock for families and individuals experiencing homelessness is the lack of housing!

Very special thanks to LA Family Housing.
