Lisa Biagiotti joins homeless youth social workers with Covenant House as they canvass Hollywood for 18- to 24-year-olds. An estimated 2,000 young adults sleep on the streets of Los Angeles every night. Down alleyways and side streets, Lisa meets Kristyna, Rimecco and Ray, and learns about what it’s like to be young and homeless in Hollywood.
‘It’s just me, myself and I [on] these cold, hard streets.’ — KRISTYNA
ON THE STREETS is an ongoing video series on homelessness in Southern California
In this video series, Lisa Biagiotti sets out to put faces to the statistics. But ‘the homeless’ are united only in that they have no place to live. She meets people on the streets, learns about their experiences and explores the issues they face. Biagiotti is collaborating with Times reporters and our data team to plot where to take her camera next.
