Jean

I met Jean in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Both of her parents died last year. The house they were living in was burned down. After paying for two funerals Jean was left without any money and housing.

Jean admits that panhandling is no way to make a living. But even though she has a good resume it’s challenging to find work when a person is homeless.

Jean’s biggest issue is affordable housing. She states there is not enough affordable housing, and that there are not enough services for homeless women.

A place to live,  her parents back, and becoming part of the community again is all she wished for.

Special thanks to EJ Davis
