Sandra is a young girl homeless on the streets of Chicago. She lost her job and place to stay.

Sandra really is invisible. Hundreds of people walk past as she tries to panhandle enough for a nights hotel stay. And because she sleeps in a hotel, government agencies do not count her as being homeless.

Sandra says, “most people don’t pay that much attention”.

Together we can change that.
