ON THE STREETS is an ongoing video series about homelessness in Southern California in the Los Angeles Times by Lisa Biagiotti. The first video in this week’s series features Kahlil, a Step Up client with whom the HOME team has been trying to reconnect. “I used to be somebody.”, says Kahlil. “Now, I’m somebody else.”

The third video in this series features Jesus, a Step Up HOPE4 client, living in an encampment in Arroyo Seco Park.  In the video, Jesus explains how the increasing number of individuals experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles is “turning from a tribe into a nation.” To hear Kahlil and Jesus tell their stories, click here: http://www.latimes.com/local/california/la-me-biagiotti-onthestreets-20151118-htmlstory.html
