Be prepared

Myra Honeycutt is homeless in Detroit. Although new housing keeps going up in the city, for Honeycutt getting a home seems an insurmountable obstacle. Even finding a shelter in the city is difficult, she says. “Men have more shelter than women in the city, but there are not enough shelters for women in the city of Detroit.” She said she became homeless when, as she aged, her companion left her, saying she was “damaged goods.” She advises young people to “get a good education, eat healthy foods and take good care of your body.” She warns that “nobody these days have job security. You can be up today and down tomorrow, one paycheck away from being homeless yourself.”
