A New Face of Homelessness

"SoCal Connected" reveals a different form of homelessness; encampments along a riverbed in the affluent community of Santa Clarita. Unlike residents on L.A.'s Skid Row, people like Mike Crosby prefer to remain less visible. Reporter Cara Santa Maria learns how Crosby survives, what caused his life to fall apart. We also talk to law enforcement, a city official, and a shelter director about the limited resources available to the homeless, and what happened after the city cleared the riverbed encampments.

Featuring Interviews With:

  • Tim Davis, executive director, Bridge to Home
  • Gail Morgan, communications manager, Santa Clarita
  • Captain Roosevelt Johnson, captain, Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station
  • Mike Crosby
