Mike and Jessie met at the 2017 Skid Row Carnival of Love and have been part of each other's lives ever since. They speak to each other on a weekly basis and share the highs and lows of life together. Mike was recently diagnosed with cancer and is not able to receive treatments until he is off the streets. He is in line to receive section 8 housing, but until then, we are raising money to put him in housing and pay for any additional medical costs his insurance does not cover.
We hope to help inspire more relationships like Mike and Jessie's through the Skid Row Carnival of Love program, not only in Los Angeles, but in other cities as well.
