John is Still Homeless


Many people have been concerned about John Crawford and his dog Mateo.  Update reported that one vendor said he had a home just before Christmas.  It was true.  He had a trailer in valley with no electricity from before Christmas until after New Year’s Day, two weeks.

Now he is back to Venice and sets up tables at a local coffee shop on Ocean Front Walk every morning and works two days for Vivian, a vendor on OFW, who writes on rice.  He is still looking for a place to live.  He has neither phone nor answering service.

He says he has a different mindset now or at least is working on it and refuses to sit with a piece of cardboard in his hand and a cup.  He wants work.
