I met Rea and her husband while they were waiting in line at a mobile medical clinic in Tampa, Florida. Each night, they sleep outside on the streets of Miami. Rea hates to feel dirty, so she uses public fountains to wash up.

Rea and her husband are not homeless because of alcohol or drugs. Rea suffers from physical problems and her husband is bipolar. They came to Florida in hopes of finding a job. But today, like millions of Americans, they have not been able to find employment.
