At the time of this interview, Christine had been sleeping outside in a tent since the winter emergency homeless shelter closed. I first met Christine while out on the streets with an outreach team in Traverse City, Michigan. Ryan, one of the best outreach workers I know who I like to call King of the Town, helped Christine get a bicycle. You can watch that video by clicking here. 

Christine was housed in a building that was infested with bugs. She decided to go back out on the streets because she felt it was healthier.

UPDATE: Christine is no longer homeless and was placed in housing!
