Homeless and Waiting in Detroit

Karen is waiting for a Section 8 inspection to move into a new residence. Unfortunately, in the mean time, she's staying on the streets. And it's been three weeks so far.

She's feeling the pain and frustration of living amongst drug users and drug dealers as she tries to enter into a new phase of her life.

Karen wishes only for some money, peace of mind and to get into her new residence. It's a shame that we can't provide solutions for people like Karen who are simply transitioning and trying to make the right choices.

Currently in Los Angeles I'm trying to find help for a homeless single mom with two kids waiting on a Section 8 inspection. It makes no sense that a program to help low income people with housing would not expedite an inspection.
