Because I have a home, I can….

  • Lock my door to keep my valuables safe
  • Receive mail
  • Invite friends in
  • Have privacy
  • Eat what and when I want
  • Send my kids on school trips
  • Raise my kids the way I want to
  • Keep my faith in humanity
  • Shower
  • Make my bed comfortable
  • Feel safe
  • Have dignity

Because I am homeless, I can ….

  • Get assaulted regularly
  • Get ticketed for sleeping in a park
  • Go hungry
  • Go without comfortable sleep
  • Get exposed to bed bugs and TB
  • Have my kids taken away
  • Have my stuff stolen
  • Start to smell  (because no showers)
