Everyone In is thrilled to announce our partnership with These Streets Magazine to produce short documentary films that tell the powerful, complex stories of homelessness in Los Angeles, as well as the efforts of those working to end this crisis.
We will release a new video in this five-part series each week.

Week of November 05: Our last video in our series with These Streets Magazine profiles Caleb Crowder, an #EveryoneIn organizer.
Caleb joined our campaign because he is deeply committed to fighting against the injustice of homelessness in Los Angeles. His energy and passion represents the spirit of our campaign.
Week of October 29: One day, Luis was ambushed by a gunman in his parking garage and a bullet entered the back of his head, exiting by his ear. This experience changed him, giving him a renewed sense of appreciation for life and a commitment to helping those less fortunate.
Today, Luis works for Walton Construction, building supportive housing units in the PATH complex on Beverly Blvd for families experiencing homelessness. He measures success by giving back to people in need.
Week of October 22: Yvette Grant, also known as Big Mama. It took 9 years for her to find housing, and in this video we explore her previous life on the streets and see firsthand the dangers our neighbors experiencing homelessness face every day. Big Mama’s story exemplifies why we are so committed for supportive and affordable housing across Los Angeles.
Week of October 15: Eric is an Outreach Supervisor with LA Family Housing, and someone whose personal story—experiencing addiction, homelessness, and incarceration—drives his work to help people in need find permanent housing and support. Eric is an advocate, and someone who is essential in our fight to get #EveryoneIn.
Week of October 8: This story is about a mother, Sharron, and her son James. After losing their home last year, they have been living alongside a river bank, surviving. Their story reminds us that even in the most impossible conditions, everyone is a human being worthy of dignity and safety. We must continue to push for the services and housing needed to help the thousands like Sharron and James.
