Shanni and her children

Shanni and her children live in a homeless shelter in Salt Lake City, Utah. She says the shelter is scary. They mix single men and women with the families. Although separated by dividers, the children witness drug use and worse.

Shanni shared she felt safer on the streets than she did living with the children’s father, which is how they ended up homeless.

At the time of this interview, Shanni was looking for work. She said she has a computer, she just didn’t have a home.

Invisible People


We imagine a world where everyone has a place to call home. Until then, we strive to be the most trusted source for homelessness.
