This morning I met Angela and reconnected with Chocolate and her pup. Angela has been experiencing homelessness on and off for decades in San Francisco.
Angela noted a lengthy past of using various addictive substances. However, she is now clean and looking to take the next step to receive permanent housing. Furthermore, Angela noted that she has the desire to do volunteer work and give back to a community that she has been a part of for so long.
Angela and I chatted about how we hope to integrate her into our outreach efforts, connecting us with other suitable candidates for our Makeshift Traveler. She noted the enormous obstacle to charging a cell phone, which is how she connected with HomeMore in the first place.
We are still in close contact with Angela, so if you would like to support her transition to permanent housing or ease the challenges of being unhoused, please click the button below and write a comment, “Angela.” We look forward to tracking her progress out of being homeless!
