Miserable. That’s how Kathy of Austin, Texas describes the experience of being homeless. I can’t say that I blame her for feeling that way. The night before this interview, Kathy slept on a bus bench. She hasn’t been able to find a job because she does not have a permanent address and because of a few prior run-ins with the law. This isn’t fair; Kathy’s mistakes should not be a life sentence for life on the streets. Everyone deserves a second, even a third, chance. We must never give up on people.

Kathy’s wishes are simple: she wants her children, a job, and a normal life. She and her husband are thinking about relocating to another state in the hope that they can find these things.
