Homeless Person of the Week

Greg Sullivan

Our series putting faces and names on San Diego's homeless

By David Rolland
It’s the day after the Fourth of July, and Greg Sullivan is talking politics with a middle-aged couple near the corner of Newport Avenue and Bacon Street in Ocean Beach. Not for kicks, mind you—he’s collecting signatures in hopes of helping get Ralph Nader on the ballot in November. In a couple of days, Sullivan is scheduled to fly to Idaho to join a similar effort there.

Lawrence Johnson

Our weekly series putting faces on San Diego's homeless

By Kelly Davis
Lawrence Johnson is wearing a hooded sweatshirt and canvas coat on an otherwise warm June day. Granted, he’s in an air-conditioned room at the Tubman Chavez Multicultural Center, there to listen to a panel discussion on home foreclosures.

Keith

Our weekly series putting faces on San Diego's homeless

By Kinsee Morlan
Living on the streets ain’t all that bad, says Keith, stationed at his usual corner in Ocean Beach hawking his handmade bracelets, anklets and necklaces, but he says it ain’t all that good, either.

Brian Whitworth

Our weekly series putting faces on San Diego's homeless

By Todd Kroviak
As he flips a cardboard sign for cars passing the corner of 11th Avenue and A Street, Brian Whitworth’s enthusiasm belies his daily struggles. He’s so friendly and eager to talk that it’s easy to forget he’s been living on the streets for years.

Joe Gomez

Our weekly series putting faces on San Diego's homeless

By Nathan Dinsdale
Joe Gomez is 46, looks 36 and won’t live to see 56. He was told four months ago that he has three to five years left, partially a result of being HIV-positive but mostly due to a rapidly deteriorating liver ravaged by years of drinking. “My doctor compared it to a stream,” Joe says. “Once you go past a certain point, like going over a waterfall, there’s no going back.”

Manny

Our weekly series putting faces on San Diego's homeless

By David Rolland
It’s Memorial Day, and several U.S. military veterans are among a handful of people—mostly men—killing time along a linear park that follows a portion of train track south of the intersection of Kettner Boulevard and Broadway in Downtown San Diego. It’s a gorgeous, breezy day, and this group of homeless folks spends it making small talk and, for some, sipping on cans of Bud.

Christine Hauser

Our weekly series putting faces on San Diego's homeless

By Kinsee Morlan
Behind a brightly colored, overgrown bougainvillea bush in Linda Vista hides the modest home of Christine Hauser. She’s lived in the house for more than 20 years, but this week she’s getting kicked out—evicted for defaulting on her loans.

Henria Wilson

Our weekly series putting faces on San Diego's homeless

By Kelly Davis
Sitting in her tent on an East Village street corner, Henria Wilson gently probes her swollen left knee. In her low Barbados drawl—reduced almost to a whisper from throat surgery—she worries that the pain might mean bone cancer.
