What does homelessness in Phoenix look like?

It looks a lot like Tim, an alcoholic who woke up facedown in a drainage ditch one morning, surrounded by garbage and booze bottles. Or like Juan and Veronica, a young couple hooked on meth, living in a makeshift tent made of bed sheets. But it also looks a lot like Stan, a veteran TV producer who lost his job after 22 years. Or Steve, whose hours at work were cut drastically. Or Cheryl, who had no place to turn when her husband threw her and their daughters out on the street.

  • Homelessness looks a lot like any of us.
