Ever since Janice was a little girl, she’s known nothing but gang life. She learned to cook dinner on a sterno can on top of a grocery cart.
Now, all she really wants is to get off the streets and have a normal life.
“Being homeless here in Portland is hard, but Cityteam cares about me and that’s comforting,” she said.
Janice first came to Cityteam during our women-only hours for a hot meal, a shower and a change of clothes. Now she’s ready to change her life.
“I’ve been on the streets for seven years. There’s only a few people who would understand what that’s like. I just want to be inside. I would love to have a place that I could call home.”
