“For me the experience of being homeless was scary, lonely, and confusing. I stayed awake at night because I was afraid of being assaulted or robbed. My life changed when I was bussed to the Downtown Women’s Center. At DWC, there was food and clothing, services, and showers. There was internet access so I could look up resources. I felt safe at DWC. I moved into my own apartment in Highland Park and I felt like it was a dream. I feel that now I have a second chance to finish what I started.”
– Gabie, Community-based Housing Resident
