Author David Ambroz and his two siblings grew up homeless under the care of a mentally ill mother. Eventually, all the three children ended up in foster care. About that time, David also realized he is gay--which made him even more of a target for others' cruelty. He tells his story in detail in his memoir A Place Called Home.  

Today we talk to him about his story of survivng and thriving, his rise out of homelessness, the fostercare system, to become a successful business executive. He is now a national poverty and child welfare expert, advocate and foster dad. He was recognized by President Obama as an American Champion of Change. He currently serves as the Head of Community Engagement (West) for Amazon.  Previously  he led Corporate Social Responsibility for Walt Disney Television, and served as the President of the Los Angeles City Planning Commission, and as a California Child Welfare Councilmember. After growing  up homeless and then in foster care, he graduated from Vassar and later from UCLA School of Law (J.D.).
