Homelessness in Downey


Looking at this picture, you might think it was of a camping trip in the middle of a beautiful field. It is actually one of the many homeless dwellings to be found in and around the Rio San Gabriel riverbed area of Downey.

IMG_1773-1In the second picture, you have to look more carefully to see the couple of tents sheltered by the trees.

Seeing these tents and the dozens of others in the area makes me wonder. How did people end up here and what should we be doing in response?

  1. Thanks for shedding some light on this problem. Their life looks rough, and I'm sure very few of the homeless are there because they want to be.
