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.

Robert

“It was rough,” Robert remembers. “I would bounce between Starbucks and fast-food restaurants to stay cool. But then I collapsed one day in front of the library on 46th Street and Thomas. When I opened my eyes, there were paramedics standing over me. They said I was very dehydrated. They told me I was lucky I woke up.”

“My stepfather kicked me out when I was 23-years old. After that I never had a steady home; I was always jumping from place to place, in and out of jail, selling drugs and sleeping out of friends’ garages. I started stealing and even my friends in prison didn’t want to have anything to do with me. My addiction swallowed everything up.”

Maggi

By the time she was 16, she was hooked on heroin. By 20, she was homeless. By 28, she had lost custody of kids, possessions, and even broken ties to family because of her growing addiction. “I always thought that God had forgotten about me or that He hated me,” Maggi admits. “I was just so done. I knew I needed to do something.”
