How You End Up Homeless: Ellis' Story

Ellis Rose

Ellis Rose

On this episode of 'Homeless in San Diego: Real People, Real Stories,' host Greg Anglea, CEO of Interfaith Community Services, welcomes Ellis Rose, who holds the ‘Homeless/ Formerly Homeless’ board seat on San Diego Regional Task Force on the Homeless. As a fellow board member (Greg holds the ‘Homeless Service Provider - North Coastal’ board seat), the two discuss the realities around what’s being done about the big issue - and what’s not, that should be.

Ellis shares his story of how he ended up facing homelessness, and the life circumstances that led him from being a homeowner, to living in his car, to eventually his worst fear- sleeping on the streets.
