Danny Gross sits in his borrowed camper parked behind the Jackson recreation center eating chicken and vegetables he prepared on a propane camping stove Monday August 12. Gross is originally from New York and is spending his summer working for Jackson parks and recreation department while his girlfriend studies for the MCAT. "Homelessness is cool here," says Gross as he talks about the lack of affordable housing for seasonal employees. While Gross embraced the adventure of his living situation he did express a wish for more support from the city and the department in general through more access to public showers and mental health support. "They don't want up here but they need us here," says Gross.
