A recent article in The Orange County Register, “Everyone Agrees: The Santa Ana River Trail is No Place to Raise Children,” (Theresa Walker, May 16, 2017) highlights the challenges that exist for families struggling with homelessness and living along the Santa Ana riverbed in Anaheim.

Families fighting to do their best often live in fear of losing their children and sometimes won’t ask for help as a result, even when they know their current living conditions may be unsafe.

The article includes mention of SPIN and the upcoming campaign, and calls attention to the need for improved services and resources for homeless families with children.
