Dee is living at the Brother Francis shelter in Anchorage, Alaska. It’s an emergency shelter, and after staying for thirty days, residents must find another place to stay.

He’s been in Alaska for nearly 30 years, and he recently found new employment. He’s now searching for low-income housing, but he cautions those who haven’t experienced homelessness: “It could happen to anybody. If you’re living from paycheck-to-paycheck, if you don’t get that paycheck, then you’re out on the street.”

It’s a scary reminder. We often try not to think about homelessness or turn our head as we walk by, but so many of us are so close to experiencing it first-hand.
