Shannon and Her Father.

Featured Video Play Icon

When I asked Shannon about homelessness in San Jose, she responded it is cold and very rough. “People steal from you when you’re sleeping” Shannon continued. Bob, her father, goes on to say there is not enough housing. Bob says the only place available to them it the local shelter and it’s too crowded.

Shannon and her father have been homeless since 1994! I can’t even imagine what they must have gone through. I also can’t imagine why as a society we have not provided them with the help they need to get out of homelessness.
