Homes for hope Tens of thousands of people are currently living on LA's streets. Last November voters passed Measure HHH -- to direct $1.3 billion to build more permanent supporting housing in LA County. Last week they passed Measure H, to provide the supportive services. But going from passing a measure to welcoming people into their new home is a long and laborious process. That's why the Martin Architecture and Design Workshop (MADWORKSHOP) and USC's School of Architecture teamed up with Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission, a housing and homeless service provider in the San Fernando Valley, to design modular, temporary structures for the homeless.

He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
