Imagine you are homeless.
Hard to imagine, I know, but go with me. You have nowhere to stay.
You’ve burnt bridges with family.
Your friends are tired of you sleeping on their couch.
You feel lost.
You feel alone.
You can’t believe it’s happened to you.
Where would you turn to find safe shelter?
For Julie*, it was her phone.
A single mom of a toddler, escaping an abusive boyfriend, who told her she was worthless, Julie found herself on the run and on the street.
On a whim, she Googled ‘homeless shelter near me’ into her phone.
At the top of her search was the Same Kind of Different as Me Foundation.

She was just desperate.
She clicked ‘locate a shelter’ on the Foundation website.
