Crystal Mason, 30 (with Maria Tia, and husband Melvin)
Maria does not want photo as she has kids to protect. Need to do a documentary and put the Homeless in perspective. American people need to see the true condition of the homeless. Women are much more complex than men. She is working with Jordan to try and find a place for them.
Crystal is from LA has been homeless for many years, she suffers from PSD and other ailments. Watched her father commit suicide with a shot at 17. Stayed in the Terminal Shelter for a while and now sleeps and stays outside. I have been working with Illumination Foundation and they sent engagement people here and gave me a $1400 voucher for housing which expires March 15th. I have had trouble following up as misplaced some documents and cannot find a place to call my home. They are quick to engage and commit but the follow thru is not good. I need more help to get a place. There are not any. We get 30% of what we make. I am disabled and will soon get Social Security. She asked if I could contact IF for her and I said I would.
