Jessica was panhandling near downtown Boston. If she hadn’t approached me and asked for money, I would have never known she was homeless. The night before Jessica washed her hair in a bus station bathroom.

Jessica says she had five years sober, but then she lost her job and started to drink and use again. She eventually ended back out on the streets. Jessica explains trying to stay sober while experiencing homelessness is difficult, but she is trying!
