Jamal, a21 year-old unmarried African-American father of three, is trying to turn his life around.

After violent fights between his crack-addicted mom + her on again-off again boyfriend, Jamal was placed in out of home care with his elderly grandmother who lives in public housing and is battling lung cancer after years of smoking.

Struggling academically, Jamal dropped out in the 9th grade, barely able to read. To survive, he turned to a life of dealing drugs. He was arrested + detained several times as a minor. When he turned 18 he lost all public benefits, including Medi-cal, + was soon arrested for illegal weapons possession.

After coming home from jail, he found his drug convictions prevented him from living with his grandmother, + his mother’s death after a long battle with HIV left him with no family, he has never known his father.

As a probationer with limited literacy, no high school diploma, + a suspended driver’s license, Jamal is trying to stay out of trouble and get a job.

He struggles to find steady employment so he can secure permanent housing for him and his kids.

Ortiz Family


Jesus + Maria Ortiz, came to the US without status seeking opportunity. They have three US born children, Juan (18), Liz (17), and Miguel (15). Every morning Jesus assembles with other men seeking work as day-laborers off High Street. Maria works as a nanny in Montclair. Neither have health insurance and Jesus has diabetes.

Jesus + Maria speak limited English, relying on their children. Liz + Miguel attend Castlemont -- she is college bound while he struggles to find his way. Juan dropped out at 15 after joining a gang -- after three convictions as a minor, Juan was tried as an adult at 17 and sentenced to 10 year in State Prison for 2nd degree murder.

The family lives in a residential motel + has a small beat up car to get around, but neither parent has a valid drivers license and the car is uninsured. For fear of being arrested and/or deported, the family primarily relies on public transit.

The Ortiz’s are saving money for an apartment + Liz is considering working to help her family instead of going to college.

Tiffany, an 18 year old teen mother of two children under 5 years old, is a survivor of sexual + child abuse. As a former sexually exploited minor (SEM), Tiffany has mental health needs that are not covered by Medi-Cal.

Even though she got her high school diploma she is frustrated by the constant rejection in trying to find a job. She was fired from her last job, part-time at $8 an hour, when her son was hospitalized for his asthma. Thankfully the bulk of her housing costs are covered by Section 8, but each month she is tempted to return to the streets to cover her $50 share.

Because her children qualify, Tiffany receives WIC and she receives a food allotment from TANF, but she never really learned how to cook so she feeds the kids TV dinners at least five times a week and frozen nuggets the other two. Family support is non-existent. Tiffany aged out of the foster care system + she doesn’t get any help from the fathers of her children.

She is trying to get on her feet to provide her kids a better life.

Bao + Dung Nguyen are refugees from Vietnam raising their four young children in EO. The Nguyens have limited English proficiency + they live in a dilapidated building, but it is the best they can afford.

Bao works under the table for a construction company + Dung works in a family-owned nail shop. They do not have medical insurance. To supplement, the family receives some public assistance which entitles the children to Medi-Cal.

The Nguyens are concerned because their children are frequently bulled + picked on the by other kids at their school and in their neighborhood because of their speech, the condition of their housing and the condition of their teeth. The teasing bothered their oldest daughter Phuong so much that she missed 103 days of the 4th grade.

The Nguyens are hoping to move into a better home and a new school.
