From those sleeping in business entryways, to those that are hopeful they will be selected in the Interfaith Rotating Winter Shelter nightly lottery drawing, to those who are working low-wage jobs and are one missed paycheck away from eviction, or students who can't piece together the funds for rent, homelessness has many faces in our community.
