The Contra Costa Times looks at the changing face of Skid Row and homelessness around Los Angeles, using examples of a Hollywood writer who lost his home and now lives out of a SUV, and a college educated father/business owner who is now on Skid Row. "In Los Angeles County - the nation's homeless capital - advocates say they are seeing real-estate agents, lawyers, business owners, pre-med students and other highly educated people losing their jobs and becoming homeless." This news follows a Downtown News story that looks at how donations are way down at Skid Row centers that serve the homeless. [Contra Costa Times/Downtown News]
