Sawtelle Homeless Encampment

Homeless encampments in L.A. have spread far beyond Skid Row. The number of people living on the streets has gone up 12 percent since 2013. And now, some neighborhoods are struggling to manage big homeless populations they’ve never seen before. Sawtelle is not a place where you would’ve seen a lot of homeless people a few years ago. But Press Play producer Anna Scott recently went inside a huge encampment there.
