There are more than 6,000 homeless people in San Francisco, according to a 2015 report, and each person has a different story.
Cheryl Iversen, who goes by Tygrr, has been homeless since the 1990s. Jackie Juarez and her fiancé, Gustavo Rios, have been living in a tent in the Mission District for about two months.
Originally from Castro Valley, Iversen ran away from home at the age of 12 and hasn’t been back since.
“Homeless people are people who are down on their luck,” Iversen says. “Then there's girls like me, who were really seriously physically and sexually abused as children.” She is currently living near Indiana Street and Islais Creek Channel, but she’s planning to move shortly because she expects an influx of people to the area when the temporary Pier 80 shelter closes July 1.
