Homeless Couple Lives In Oakland Tent Community

The Haze Of Our Lives™ "X"

I first met Kymberli when she was bringing her dirty dishes in a small children's wagon to a water hose to clean. The reality of living out on the streets or in a tent encampment is till homeless. Imagine day after day living without indoor plumbing for hygiene, cleaning and simply to quench a thirst.

Kymberli and B have been married for fifteen years. They were caregivers for Kymberli's father who lived around the corner from the house they rented. When Kymberli's father passed away, the couple moved into the house which was owned by Kymberli's uncle who then died a few weeks later. Like most areas anymore, skyrocketing rent caused by a lack of affordable housing is creating greedy landlords. The rent for the house was going up to $2,500 and that was more than they could afford.

Kymberli and B first lived in their car. They then lived in a vacant lot. Kymberli and B now live in a tent community in Oakland, California. The couple built a little shack. They have a generator they run for lights and to power for a TV. But there is no water or bathrooms and little security. B says when they leave, they don't know if their stuff will be there when they return.

Kymberli and B are working hard to get out of homelessness. They started a landscaping business. Now that their car broke down, they use bicycles to tow their lawn mowers. If you'd like to help Kymberli and B get their car repaired or help them purchase a commercial vehicle for their landscaping business, click here:

About Invisible People:

Since its launch in November 2008, Invisible People has leveraged the power of video and the massive reach of social media to share the compelling, gritty, and unfiltered stories of homeless people from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. The vlog (video blog) gets up close and personal with veterans, mothers, children, layoff victims and others who have been forced onto the streets by a variety of circumstances. Each week, they’re on, and high traffic sites such as YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, proving to a global audience that while they may often be ignored, they are far from invisible.

Invisible People goes beyond the rhetoric, statistics, political debates, and limitations of social services to examine poverty in America via a medium that audiences of all ages can understand, and can’t ignore. The vlog puts into context one of our nation’s most troubling and prevalent issues through personal stories captured by the lens of Mark Horvath – its founder – and brings into focus the pain, hardship and hopelessness that millions face each day. One story at a time, videos posted on shatter the stereotypes of America’s homeless, force shifts in perception and deliver a call to action that is being answered by national brands, nonprofit organizations and everyday citizens now committed to opening their eyes and their hearts to those too often forgotten.

Invisible People is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to changing the way we think about people experiencing homelessness.

I Think They're Leaving Out A Lot Of Information In Their Story.. Like Why Didn't They Move Out After The Father Died? Or At Least Start Looking For Some Place To Live.. Are They Getting Social Security Benefits? Why Do They Stay In A City They Can No Longer Afford To Live In?

These Are Two Grown Ass People.. They Should Have Had A Lot More Common Sense Than This.. What Were They Doing With The Money They Were Saving On The Rent When The Father Was Alive? What Were They Doing When The Relative Got The House.. I Have A Suspicion These Two?

Have Been Freeloading Most Of Both Their Lives.. Moving In On People And NOT Paying Them Rent Or Helping With Bills ETC.. They Look About My Age.. They Have Probably Been Playing People For So Long? That They've Run Out Of People To Play.. Like, Mostly Family Members.. Now They're Out Of Game AND Youth... I SMELL BULLSHIT.. Jus Sayin.. Yep...

Great point Fam. I wonder why they have not thought of moving to Oregon since that state is practically begging blacks to come BACK there after all that redlining to keep black out of the whole state.

Rare to see a Black woman stick with a Black man thru homelessness. Especially in the Bay.
