Two weeks ago, Nancy Brown poured her last $20 into her gas tank and began to sob. The 35-year-old waitress was middle class, healthy, sane, newly employed--and homeless. Brown and her husband, a refrigeration technician, were laid off from their jobs in Riverside within a week of each other. That was 18 months ago. They have since dived straight down through what used to be called "the safety net." Their unemployment benefits and savings evaporated while they looked for new jobs.
