Homeless Woman Sleeping in Neighborhood
By an edhat reader
We live on the Westside near a parking lot which tends to attract some interesting characters parking along the side of our house. Usually, its teenagers looking to make out and smoke pot but lately we think there may be a woman living out of her car.
On a few mornings, my wife leaves for work quite early and she's seen an older woman (mid 60's maybe) urinating and/or defecating on the side yard of our house and across the street. She watched the woman then get into a nice-looking sedan and lay down in the backseat. She said she didn't look "homeless" and the first time we chalked it up to maybe misreading the situation but after the second time and seeing which car belongs to her we're pretty sure she's living out of her car.
We don't want to call 911 for a non-emergency and hope this woman gets the services she needs, but also don't want her defecating on the sidewalk. Who's the best agency to call?
