Sandy has a quick smile and deep-set religious beliefs. Yet, she has lived on the streets for most of the past five years.

According to the federal government, Sandy is chronically homeless (having had at least four episodes of homelessness in the past three years). Yet, she is still young and still relatively new to the streets.

When I look at Sandy, I can’t help but think about her future. Will she find a way up and off the streets? Or will the stress and fear of street life overcome her and slowly make that smile fade away.
