"Up, Up, and Away" – USC Student Interview

I love meeting students who care about this issue. Thank you Jacob Kramer for putting together this piece:
"Up, Up, and Away"

Natalie update

You may recall Natalie Moore, the resident at 624 Coronado St whose building was sold to a developer who tore the roof of during the rainy season and then got the city to declare the building unsafe and evict all the tenants. Luckily people here in the neighborhood helped to stop this and make sure Natalie was rehomed while the 4plex craftsman was rehabbed.
I am happy to report that Natalie is doing well. She celebrated her 90's birthday in her renovated apartment where she lives with 2 cats and her 2 pound chihuahua Isabel. Because Natalie's housing situation stabilized, she was finally able to take steps to get some health issues taken care of with the help of a caregiver.
