On this episode of 'Homeless in San Diego: Real People, Real Stories,' host Greg Anglea, CEO of Interfaith Community Services, welcomes Analaura. Analaura is a writer who shares her own experiences, perspectives, and struggles with homelessness.

Taking special note of the trauma homelessness causes, she reflects on the journey the last half of her life has taken her through. Whether it was growing up in a car with her entire family or trying to find housing with Interfaith, Analaura’s personal story is a truly touching account of overcoming both personal and circumstantial battles.

Calls to Action:

  • “Put down your perfection:” Analaura asks us to find it in ourselves to bring whatever we can to the table in spite of any apathy towards homelessness.

  • “Bring back the dignity:” Even if it’s a simple gesture or conversation, that sense of dignity may help those healing in their journey out of homelessness.
