Los Angeles Mayor Steals Tiny Houses, Kills Dreams of Homeless

This story about one man's efforts to make a difference in the lives of some of the thousands of homeless men and women in Los Angeles is heart wrenching.

Published on Dec 9, 2016, this video tells the saga of how Elvis Summers, a struggling musician in Los Angeles, used his personal savings and then crowdfunded $100,000 to build dozens of tiny homes for homeless residents of the City of Angels. But, in their omnipotence, certain all-knowing city officials looking to pass a $2 billion housing plan tried to shut him down.

This story of one man's efforts to make a difference reminds me of another story that has been around for years. But it explains with what Elvis is trying to do.
