In this photo taken Oct. 10, 2017, group of homeless people, including Ellen Tara James-Penney (wearing blue) left, a lecturer at San Jose State University, receive a meal at Grace Baptist Church in San Jose, Calif. The booming economy along the West Coast has led to an historic shortage of affordable housing and has upended the stereotypical view of people out on the streets. Reporting by The Associated Press finds that many of them are employed, working as retail clerks, plumbers, janitors _ even teachers. They go to work, sleep where they can and buy gym memberships for a place to shower. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)
