“It sucks being homeless. And I don’t ever want to see my little girl homeless.”

This was the first thing Jessica said when I met her in Anchorage. She and her 1-year-old daughter are currently living with Jessica’s aunt, who sometimes kicks them out when she’s angry.

She’s a young mother, obviously scared to be on the streets any longer. It’s a face we don’t usually associate with homelessness. Instead of three wishes, she only had one, tearful wish: to go home.
