Shawn Pleasants has the kind of resume that would attract the attention of any job recruiter: high school valedictorian, economics major from Yale University, Wall Street banking jobs, small business entrepreneur. But a few wrong turns in life 10 years ago left him homeless, and today he's living underneath a tarp in the Koreatown section of Los Angeles.

He doesn't want to move to a facility "far away" because the facilities are not in close enough proximity to the drug dealers and the easy panhandling for buying drugs.
