Linda was one of Shaw Talley's first clients in his safe parking program. Shaw offered the mobile homeless; those who are homeless but still have a vehicle to live in, a safe place to park overnight and sleep without harassment from others. Shaw would then help those in the program find jobs and eventually move back into a home. Linda is just one of the many success stories of the safe parking program.

The Clements are a family of 6 living in their RV in Santa Barbara. Currently they are in the Safe Parking Program, which helps place them in a parking lot where they can park overnight for free, and works with them to help with living expenses and also with job placement. Today they went to Ralph's with one of the private donors to the program to help purchase groceries for the week. The ultimate goal of the program is to help people like the Clements get back on their feet and in to a home of their own.
