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.

After living in a Skid Row hotel room with his 2- and 3-year-old daughters, Kenneth Ross now has a new home at the Coronado Place Apartments in Pico-Union. Last week, the Rosses and four other families moved into the partially renovated building at 671 S. Coronado St. "I was speechless when I got here," said Ross, 37. "I couldn't actually believe that they were this nice. This will give me a chance to get stabilized and try to get work."

Sometimes, late at night--in the quiet, in the dark--Maria Ortega would sit outside her family's desert home in Michoacan, Mexico, and dream of a better life in El Norte with her husband, Federico. The dream was to have a house with a shiny new kitchen, carpeted floors and, the most important luxury, real beds with box springs and clean sheets. But eight years later, the Ortegas' life was anything but a dream.
