A GoFundMe for Amanda said that she “had been brutally raped and severely assaulted daily as a young homeless women living on the streets of LA’s infamous Skid Row. These attacks were so barbaric that Amanda had lost all of her front teeth. Her father, had tried to take her into treatment but she was denied care because the staff said she was ‘too far gone’ and they offered him grief counselling instead. The reputative abuse and trauma and her inability to escape from the dangerous and toxic environment lead her to a destructive path, that like too many, she could not afford to escape.”
