Homeless on Rosecrans Trailer

San Diego's Rosecrans Street stretches between the tip of Point Loma, where million dollar homes enjoy sweeping views of San Diego Bay, to Old Town, where two of San Diego's busiest freeways intersect. The intersection of Rosecrans and Midway is one of San Diego's busiest -- a fact not lost on the panhandlers. When the sun is out, it's not a rare site to see someone on each corner of the intersection waving a sign heralding the need for food, money, or employment. A group of students from nearby High Tech High Media Arts were curious about the numerous nameless, faceless figures passed every day on the way to and from school. As a school project, we decided to meet some of these people and learn about how they ended up on Rosecrans. Here are their stories in their own words.
