Culver City Stories: Meet Jamie

Jamie has been coming to the winter shelter for 2 months, ever since he last was released from prison. He explained his past as one full of drugs, crime, and having experienced homelessness. In and out of prison his entire life, he has spent over 20 years imprisoned for various crimes. But now,  he is ready to start over.

Since being released, Jamie spends his days on Venice beach playing his guitar and performing on the boardwalk. At 5:30 he catches the second bus to the Culver City winter shelter. “This place is my stepping stone. It is my transition, to get my life back on the line.” He is hoping the shelter will be staying open longer, long enough for him to save up his own money.

Check back tomorrow for another look into the guests of Culver City Winter Shelter.
