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.

Transformed Lives

Meet the people whose lives have been radically changed.

Isaac

Isaac found himself on the streets after a rough divorce left him depressed and without much motivation to keep on going.  As a veteran of the Iraq war, his training taught him how vital it is to stay hydrated in the desert, but training only takes you so far without the basics. “That was the hardest thing about being on the streets. My shoes were falling apart, my clothes were in tatters. We would make makeshift tarps to stay out of the sun, but they didn’t last long.” Then Isaac felt a push in the right direction.

Gayla

My answer to everything was to party and smoke marijuana. I found some friends that introduced me to harder drugs and I was addicted.” Shortly after, our home became foreclosed, I was back to being homeless and was on and off the streets, in jail or doing drugs. Each time I was released from jail, there it was – the Hope Coach. You could say, at that point, it was the only consistent thing in my life. It made an impression, and ultimately changed my life forever.
