Coreen

Coreen is homeless, but she is also a survivor. I met her on her second day living in Nickelsville, Seattle’s infamous tent city. Rather than stay in an abusive relationship, Coreen ran with just the clothes on her back to escape the daily beatings. I’m glad she got away, many victims of domestic violence are not so lucky.

Although the thought of being homeless was frightening to Coreen, she was happy to escape to Nickelsville. She said that her first night in the tent city was the best night’s sleep she’s had in over a year because she now feels safe.

Now if only we could give all of the residents of Nickelsville the peace of having a ‘safe ground’ of their own.
