Carrie Leonard talks about the experience of being homeless. She describes her arrival in Boulder from Longmont, circa 2002, along with her two children. She describes how a typical day starts at the shelter, positive activities that occupy her time, efforts to establish an all-woman’s day center, and the sense of community/unity among Boulder’s homeless population. Other points of discussion include: circumstances that bring a person to being homeless; safety concerns; “likes” and “dislikes” from her perspective; differences and distinctions between people who are homeless versus transient; prejudice toward homeless and/or transient; and the frustration of being branded or mislabeled. Carrie also demonstrates a positive outlook, talking about self pride, appreciation of simple things, creating fun, and her picture of a future that includes a house.
