Dawn

Featured Video Play Icon

Dawn plays for the Lady Salamanders, a street soccer team based out of Sacramento.

In late 2011 Dawn lost her job and her housing all in the same week and had nowhere to go. She lived in a car for a few days and then found a homeless shelter. She was lucky to get into transitional housing, but that housing runs our in a few months. Dawn has qualified for subsidized housing, but the funding was frozen leaving her future to be unknown.

I met Dawn at the Street Soccer West Coast Cup this past week in San Francisco. Dawn plays soccer as part of her recovery. You can see by the smile on her face that street soccer means the world to her.
