Maria De La Rosa watched her two young sons play tag in Elysian Park Sunday, relishing the simple pleasure of the family outing. Two years ago, she was homeless, a victim of domestic violence bouncing between shelters around Los Angeles. But a few weeks ago, the 30-year-old woman moved into her own two-bedroom house in Arcadia. Her sons have their own rooms. She can go for walks in the evenings.
