How a millionaire real estate developer welcomed a homeless couple into his $4 million California ma

A millionaire has welcomed a homeless couple into his $4 million mansion in California to show people that living on the streets isn't 'contagious'.

Greg Dunston, a former security guard injured on the job, and Marie Mckinzie, a former cashier and certified nurse assistant, lived on the streets of Oakland, California, for a decade before generous Bay Area homeowner Terry McGrath offered them a roof over their heads.

McGrath gave the couple the in-law unit of his mansion in the upper-class Piedmont neighborhood after seeing a story that was published about them in the San Francisco Chronicle in January 2019.

Otis Taylor, a journalist for the San Francisco Chronicle, told ABC News last year there is huge disparity in the Bay Area between the wealthy and the homeless.
