Amy lives in “Hopeville”, a tent community right by the Arch in downtown St Louis.

Amy says what’s keeping her there is her eyesight and not having glasses to work.

Tent communities can be very complex. Amy describes some of the history and structure.

I visited Hopeville this past summer and I cannot imagine what it must be like in a Missouri winter. According to a recent story in St Louis Dispatch they are not going anywhere soon.
