I saw Brenda blocks away sitting in front of a shopping mall in Saskatoon, Canada. She wasn’t asking people for anything. She was just sitting. Panhandling is humiliating so often homeless people can’t bring themselves to beg but just sit in public areas.

Brenda shares about sleeping outside and sprinklers going off getting all her stuff socked. This is something we have in common that I wrote about in My First Night Homeless

Brenda lost her job, couldn’t get on social services, then lost her apartment.

Homelessness is horrible. Brenda should not have to live like this. This is another powerful interview that not only walks about the problems but sheds light on solutions. We need more housing, jobs and health services.

    Awe, she breaks my heart, you can see the pain in her eyes. Every day is such a struggle for her, her pride has been stripped and it almost looks like she feels as if she’s losing herself each day that she’s on the street.

    If she would have stayed away from the booz she would have kept her job and her appartment.  She would have been just fine. She just had to work a little harder/

    Tomato_mom, maybe I missed something but where, in the interview, was it stated that this woman drank?
