EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – As millions in Southern California stay home to protect against COVID-19, some people are not so lucky.  

The lives of homeless mothers with children or women stuck in abusive relationship have – and will – become harder.  Shelters are doing their best, but some have started turning away newcomers to avoid overcrowding. 

Sister Jennifer Gaeta, the Executive Director of the Los Angeles House of Ruth, joined Your Morning via Skype to talk about the increasing needs of her organization and how we can help.

“About 90% of women who become homeless became homeless due to domestic violence,” said Sister Gaeta.
