Johana got pregnant at the young age of 14. After constant fighting with her mom, she went and lived with another couple. The guy tried to pimp her out on the streets as a sex worker. Johanna left. Her son is now with her mom. Johana lives in a tent on the side of the 101 Freeway. 

The 101 Hollywood Freeway is the 2nd busiest freeway in Los Angeles.  It carries more than 125,000 cars daily. As homelessness grows, It is now common to see tents alongside California freeways and often on overpasses. Homeless encampments are everywhere. There are real people in those tents you see as you drive by. All of them need our help to get off the streets into housing.

Your voice can help end homelessness. If we do not fix the affordable housing crisis, homelessness will continue to get worse. Click here to tweet, email, call, or Facebook your federal and state legislators to tell them ending homelessness and creating more affordable housing is a priority to you.
