About This Image
Photographer's stamp, verso. See LIFE, December, 1987. The Damm family: Crissy, 6; Jesse, 4; their mother, Linda, 27, a former nursing-home aide and their stepfather, Dean, 33, an ex-trucker. In the story on homelessness in America, LIFE readers were shown and told the heart wrenching story of this family who struggled to keep afloat. Mark spent seven days with the family during the fifth week in which they had no place to call home.
