Highly Educated...Highly Motivated...Still Homeless - Part 1

Imagine this: You are adopted and unaware that you have a progressive genetic disorder. You graduate from Harvard and successfully hold jobs...until you can't. This is Trena's story and her path to homelessness and living in her car.


About the project:

These stories "caught" by StoryCatchers, Betty Louise and Susan M. Davis, inspire inclusion and common humanity with homeless people and promote compassionate action with the community at large. Stories connect us to our humanity. The Humanities, Arts, and Media communicate Story. The result is cultural transformation.This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a partner of the NEH. Visit www.calhum.org.
