"I lost my job a month ago and I haven't been able to find another one. I've been submitting so many applications but I haven't heard anything back yet. I'm scared because I have three little girls; Itzel, Sandra, and Karla. My wife, Laura, can't work because she has to take care of them. And we haven't paid rent so we're close to getting evicted. All of my family is in Mexico so we don't have anyone to rely on. I don't know what I'll do." -Gaspar
I came across Gaspar in DTSA, his sign read: "NEED A JOB TO SUPPORT MY FAMILY. ANY LITTLE BIT HELPS." As soon as he told me his story, I walked with him to the grocery store and bought him a cart of food for him and his girls. The look of relief on his face was heartfelt. Thanks guys @beverlysalas & @santanerozine for contributing. Please pray for him and his family to keep their home and get back on their feet. πŸ‘Ό #zinesforthehomeless #beautifulhumans #santaana

For the most part, I stopped buying fast food for the homeless. I heard them out and they prefer fruit or just about anything other than McDonalds haha understandable. For weeks now I've been buying Angel and all others natural fruit smoothies from @jugosacapulco and they love it. The juices even helped Angel recover from being ill and puking the other day. Thanks @thejennichino for helping him out. PS: Angel bought himself a new & very stylish hat.

"Every Sunday morning, a man named Dwight, opens up his home to all homeless women. He serves all of us breakfast in his backyard and gives us the chance to clean up. I'm always the first one there to make sure he opens. Can I keep this? I want to show everyone your magazine." -Cindy
It's relieving to know there are others in Santa Ana taking initiative and offering help to the homeless community. Thanks @taniasancon & @keex714 for helping feed Cindy. Ps if you're local and have any clothes you'd like to donate please let me know, I'll come and pick it up. Thanks guys!! #zinesforthehomeless #beautifulhumans #santaana

This is Charlie. Every night for the last 8yrs, Charlie has sat outside of this local ice cream shop, located in Downtown Santa Ana, and waited until it closes to walk the owner, Martha, safely to her car. "Martha is a good friend of mine and this isn't always a safe place at night. Throughout the day I help her take out the trash and clean up a few things and then I wait until she closes the store. I'm sad though because this Sunday is her last day and I won't see her anymore. I don't know how she feels but I'm sad about it." -Charlie
I met Charlie a few weeks ago and he's always been there. And always smiling. I think what he does for Martha is great and more people should know about it.

A good friend asked me why my brother and I do what we do for the homeless. And aside from the satisfaction we get from knowing we gave someone food, it's the bond we build with every single homeless person we meet. It's not just buy a meal and walk away; it's hearing them out and learning about their lives. You can tell when the stories they're saying are stories they haven't told in a long time and stories they don't say to just anyone. Feeding the homeless community of Santa Ana is getting to know them and showing them that someone cares. And even if you guys don't have money or time to stop and buy them a meal, I encourage you to simply say hello and smile, that can go a long way. A homeless person is simply a person without a home. The photos I shoot of them are never forced and they always come after we spend time with them. The photos are simply to keep Solace going. But seeing them pose and smile at my lens, knowing we brought them happiness and friendship is the best feeling, ever. Thank you guys for the continued support of Solace zines. Can't believe how quickly and how many Solace zines people are picking up. The homeless community and ourselves thank you! Ps donations of clothes are greatly appreciated. Spread the word.

"I used to be an actor. Acting was something I really loved. When I was 12yrs old I played the role of the Genie in the Genie in the Lamp play at my school. Too bad I didn't stick to acting. That was when I lived in Virginia, where I'm from. And now I'm 53yrs old sitting here in California. At least the weather is always nice. Don't quit whatever it is you love doing" -Joseph
I sat and talked with Joseph in this alley for about an hour. He mostly reminisced about his acting days and throughout it he acted out different emotions. Quite a show.
Thanks @taniasancon for helping feed Joseph. :)

"I used to live right across the street from here. I was the school crossing guard for years. I only made enough to afford sleeping on the house owner's couch. One day I lost my job and I've been on the street ever since. In reality, we are all one paycheck away from being homeless." -Angel
I never fail to meet up with Angel when I go to downtown Santa Ana to feed the homeless community. He has one of the most kind demeanors. And thanks to you guys I can always enjoy a meal with him.
