A Day in the Life of a Woman on Skid Row

As part of a collaboration with dozens of other LA and San Francisco media outlets, KCRW focused an entire day of coverage Wednesday on the issue of homelessness. The homeless crisis in Los Angeles County has gotten so bad, elected officials have called it a humanitarian disaster. About 47,000 people are living on the streets. But who are these men and women? What is life like for them every day? Press Play producer Anna Scott recently spent a day on Skid Row with a woman named Dawn Lee Ghan.
