"I first met Stacey when her daughter was only a year old. They were living mostly on the streets, with friends or acquaintances, or sleeping in libraries and emergency rooms for safety. Stacey and her daughter had to use the bus system to access anywhere they needed to be, which required bus fare or bus passes from someone." Read the rest of Stacey's story here.



“I got shot several years ago. I became addicted to pain killers and then heroin. Because of my addiction, I lost my children and I have been in jail,” she said. “I got clean while I was in jail.

I have walked around, slept in abandoned houses, and have prayed that I would not use drugs again.” Read the rest of Madison's story here.
