Yogi is 69 years old and sleeping outside in San Jose, one of the wealthiest regions of our great country. Yogi became homeless after her first husband died. Remarkably, Yogi is still in positive spirits even after being homeless for 25 years. No one should be homeless for even a day, but for 25 years living outside in Silicon Valley – this is a tragedy.

Yogi says they do everything they can to make money, but they just cannot afford the high cost of rents in the area. The week before this visit, 5 people froze to death in the area. Knowing this sweet woman is sleeping out in the deadly cold every night I hope messes you up as it does me.
