I met Cheryl in Burlington, Vermont. Cheryl is pregnant and currently couch surfing.
Cheryl’s homelessness is a result of several bad relationships, some of which were abusive. Before you judge her, keep in mind life on the streets is not a normal life. It’s a horrible existence willed with lots of pain. Some people escape with drugs, some escape through relationships. For a single female “survival sex” may be the only way to survive.
At a young age Cheryl was sexually assaulted. She then grew up in foster homes, which also attributed to her being homelessness
