During the summer of 2014, four young adults courageously told us their life stories, sharing the human toll of housing insecurity. Melita faced the challenge of raising her children in an overcrowded home. Dominique confronted the anguish of coming out as gay to unaccepting family members. Sherrieff was alone and homeless after aging out of foster care. And Brandon spent his childhood and youth in shelters, determined to build a home and a future of his own.
