The Houston Chronicle highlighted the dangers of living on the streets in a recent visual essay about a homeless couple. They interviewed Melissa Fay, who is washing windows and living under an overpass with her husband, according to the Chronicle. She joins the 3,500 homeless people living in Harris County, 1,500 of them “unsheltered.”
Fearful of the dangers posed by her situation, Fay has had to learn to cultivate survival skills.
“It’s about survival,” Fay said. “It’s about having money out here. It’s about having to carry this to protect myself,” she said holding up a pocket knife. “I shouldn’t have to.”
Homelessness is a crisis sweeping the nation, and the dangers are real. Reason.com reports that California’s homeless population has jumped over 12 percent in the last five years, and more than 1,000 homeless people died on the streets of Los Angeles County last year, according to government figures.
A new documentary by DML News App Founder Dennis Michael Lynch reveals how some people experiencing homelessness are living. Moving through multiple cities, the film explores various programs and how they affect real people.
