Day Five: The Faces of Homelessness

“I refuse to believe that anyone sets out to become homeless for the rest of their lives. “

One thought on “Day Five: The Faces of Homelessness

  1. I agree no one has a plan to become homeless. No one takes the time to see what happen. Unless we talk and ask we should not say anything. You will never know what happen what blind of job they had or it may be something that hit hard at home so bwfir you say anything just think to yourself this could happen to you.
