Wenda's story: A hard worker and homeowner for most of her life, Wenda suddenly faced a series of unexpected medical conditions and expensive bills that resulted in losing her home. With too few options in California for safe, stable, and affordable homes/apartments, Wenda and her son found themselves on the street with no where to turn. The day this photo was taken, Wenda received news she would have a temporary place for her to stay. Her son, who would soon be leaving to join the military, said he was "relieved for the moment" that "Mom will have a roof over her head" while she continues looking for a permanent place to call home.
