Working, but still homeless in California


When will more than $2.7 billion the state has invested in fighting homelessness and building affordable housing reach the people who need it?

When Coleen Sykes Ray started an organization with her daughter in 2015 to help homeless women, the Stockton, California resident had no idea she, too, would be homeless four years later.

Now, she, her husband and two children live in an Extended Stay America hotel in Stockton. The family pays a costly $610 hotel bill every week as they struggle to find a place to live.
