After gut-punch of a year, Angelenos eager for dose of hope during Garcetti’s State of City talk

Tricia Helton, who worked as a manager for the homes of affluent Angelenos and celebrities, was hired more than a year ago to oversee the house of a Brentwood family. After COVID-19 pandemic “Safer at Home” rules kicked in, that job went away. Without an income, the 48-year-old Studio City resident scrambled to pay her rent, and keep up payments on her car and credit cards.
