4:46 pm
hey, we're almost there. you remember this? i there to, we're below that one are you? there it is. so this is where we used to live at the union rescue mission. this is the front door. yeah, we stayed here 8 months. at 1st, there were so many families, women, and children here that we stayed in the day room, which is basically like a large dining room, large cafeteria, south setting linoleum floors. it looks like a gymnasium. but we had air mattresses and slapped on the floor for the 1st couple of months. um, so from september until december and then in december we were placed into a room. and because my daughter was with me and not my son was just me and one child, i was sharing a room with 4 other mothers who all had one child with them at the time.
4:47 pm
i am. mm mm mm mm ah i don't me, jackie, are both of us go to at aid every afternoon about 75 miles 80 miles from our ball or the longest distance is when we do that
4:48 pm
in santa monica. that takes at least an hour and 45 minutes to get there. we do this for 5 nights of the monday through friday. mondays. control and dow tuesday or wednesday south central la is venice or santa monica friday in town. the civic center union station mm. the lead we have designed our program is to serve them better. they are. don't ask them any question, don't judge them. that's pretty much how they ended up being on the street. it's not god job the judge. ah, nobody likes to be sleeping on the payments that their traffic running down in a totally on ah,
4:49 pm
that's nobody with ah, a 1000000 reasons why physical homeless, it's not always mental illness and it's not always drug addiction. yes, those are 2. i think those are 2 reasons that have a really negative connotation. so it's easy to say, only crazy people become homeless and it's easy to say, only addicts and drug users become homeless. that's never going to happen to me and my family. but the truth is in the united states, most people are a paycheck or 2 away. they're, they're one unpaid credit card away. you know they're one payday loan away or one unexpected pregnancy away. there one job loss away there. so many reasons why you
4:50 pm
could end up homeless and unable to pay your bills and unable to keep a roof over your head and your families had lots of people leave the foster care system and have nowhere to go. you turn 18 years old and you are out. that's it. you go from having no parents and just a foster family to being on the street. all of a sudden, you're 18. it's like you're an adult. figure it out. ah . ah, when you're living on the street, when you are an unselfish person, when you have nowhere else to go and you have nothing to look forward to, i really think that i can understand how easy it must be to slip into drug use and has then fall into addiction, because if you've got nothing else good going on in your day and you need something
4:51 pm
to make you feel good, i can't imagine that there is you know, i can't imagine that much else is going to make you feel good at that point when you hit rock bottom like it is what it is. i don't know. so i do have an immigrant coming from india. it was very, very hard for me because i've seen power deal of what it bothered me here to see these homeless people who are raised here. bond here, such a wealthy country of the world, the wealthiest country of the world. and yet these people are going to trash cans to see why.
4:52 pm
mm. ah. ah, i mean we have a program called she and i me, we basically take food hot meals to the homeless that i would, they are a ah,
4:53 pm
on an average lisa of about 150 to 200 wheels a night. we make it a point that we don't have them fall my line. if somebody comes to the truck, fine, those line in my opinion is kind of human. i think that's not the idea that we started bid. we want to give big nitty is the big thing with all their setting up the table and getting this water either way we need to, i had
4:54 pm
both the wall and peers as well as them receive something. i would like to say it is waldron t as the see more than what they're giving with us again, we might be passing on a few bucks worth help, but ito of food on donations of clothing, vanity, i work in the lawn and hear what you get is an expedient self compassion confession and i'd be taught compassion can only be expedius and you know, what value on that that's priceless with . i was basically faced with that situation where the apartment manager knew i didn't have any way of paying immediately. ah,
4:55 pm
but when i told her i was going to start working and i had family that would cover the rent until then it didn't matter to her. she said that she knew i was going to go back to him that she'd seen it happen hundreds of times before where women claim that they're being abused, and then they run right back to the man that they're alleging abuse against. and she didn't want to deal with that drama, and she thought it was better if i just knew the manager gave me a deadline to leave before she filed the eviction people were. and so i left because i knew it was just going to be that much harder to find an apartment. if i had an eviction on my record. but the day that i left the apartment, i really, i did not have anywhere to go. i had a little bit of money from my aunt and so i went and booked
4:56 pm
a hotel room as langley and i was staying in hotel rooms by myself. or like if i didn't have enough money, i would see for my car. and i would try to like mm. like i had packed up and put everything into storage, but i didn't really know how he's going to pay the storage bill. like how me going to pay for, you know, to keep the kids clothes and their toys and things like that. and so i started selling things out of the storage unit to keep the storage unit and then going and selling blood plasma. i was working on doing online transcription. so that was piece rate. it was very, very small sums of money. i might work all day and make you know, $15.00. i had never been on welfare before. i had never been on assistance before.
4:57 pm
i've, i've had unemployment when i lost jobs in the past, but i had never gotten food stamps. i had never gotten any. and to go from having had a job since i was 13 years old to being in a motel wondering how i'm going to get $40.00 to find somewhere for me and my kids to sleep. it was like an impossible momentous. i just had no comprehension of how do i get to a homeless shelter. so that whole process was from may 15th of 2017 and we moved into domestic violence. shelter was july 3rd. so all those months were in motel rooms were submitting are nice guys, are financial survival guide, liquid assets are those that you can convert into quite easily. but keep in mind,
4:58 pm
no, as a financial advisor was dr. report when i was showing the wrong one, i just don't know. i mean you've yes to figure out this thing becomes the attitude and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. ah .
4:59 pm
the world is driven by drink shaped bankers out of those with theirs sinks. we dare to ask these are the 4 people who pull the trigger and survive something on survival. one of the hardest things that i had to face was not having
5:00 pm
a face at a low expectation to life. i accepted accept the fact that i made that appointment . we had no fears. del change pretty fast for shots. different stories behind the bullets. ah basements accused, the spreading hates and weakening democracy by whistleblower. the revelations that he us senate hearing son is thought contrast to just a few years ago when social media platforms were hailed for bringing about the arabs bring its energy, crisis deepens with italy, bearing the brunt reco gas prices have left many unable to pay the bills would you tell me, i am really shocked, i'm aware of what is going on, and i have to say we are upset, an absolute shame the italian state, instead of protecting its citizens, does exactly the opposite. it has raised the tariffs of goods such as electricity
