The Face of Being Without A Home


Over the years, the face of homelessness has been someone who lives under a bridge, unkempt, wearing layers of clothing, unemployed, using cardboard boxes as shelter, pushing a shopping cart full of items, unproductive citizens of society, seniors, runaways, etc.,  However, these are stereotypes of homelessness.

Some homeless people are college students, high school students, teenagers, church members, church attendees, working citizens of society, who don’t have the privilege, security, or pleasure of having a home. Their own home. A permanent place of dwelling. They are contributing to their life and to society, they just don’t have their own place to live.

For example, I am an entrepreneur, a college student, a blogger, employed, and I do freelance work. I grew up in church and attended church up to now, most of my adult life. I do not have a permanent place of my own to live. All of the things that I listed are contributions to my life and to society.

There are people who live in their vehicle, people who use a restaurant restroom or other restroom to clean up for the day and don’t miss a beat showing up to their job. Homelessness is real. It’s not a financial problem. Although, finances can “help” alleviate homelessness. I have come to learn, realize and understand, that the real source of homelessness is broken relationships”. Yes. “Broken relationships.” 

A whole relationship, would genuinely take in the homeless person and help them to having their own home. But because the relationship is frayed in some way, where the person does not want to be bothered with the homeless person or does not want to have anything to do with the homeless person, or does not want to get involved in a situation of such degree, that homeless person is left out on the street to fend by themselves and for themselves.

Relationships are “gold.” We were not created to be an island to ourselves. If our most important relationships, such as family, friends and church sisters and brothers are not great, we don’t have resources to help us during hard times. Thus, the social system, government assistance, shelters, and the like who try to assist in the place of the “relationships” that should be intact.

I can go further in this from a biblical standpoint. I will just leave two scripture of reference that highlights the importance of “relationships”.

In Ecclesiastes, King Solomon, the richest and wisest biblical person listed outside of God in the bible, who God gave wisdom and riches, stated:

Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow; but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. – Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 KJV

Do you know how wealthy help each other? Through relationships! Through networking! Through recommendations! Through references! Through contacts! Through information! Through referrals!

Yes, money will help! In some instances, how does money get to some or assist some people? Through “relationships.”

As you prayerfully go through life, I urge you to assess your relationships.

How are your relationships?

What Homelessness Looks Like For A Saved, Single, Female 

What Homelessness Looks Like For A Saved, Single, Female: Four Items Total, 3 Bags And 1 Backpack 

Save, Single, Female And Homeless

Saved, Single, Female and Without A Home


What I did not want to mention or make known to protect myself, some people already know or knew. Why am I trying to hide it? Why am I trying to keep it a secret?

What I don’t want to talk about may be the very thing that I need to talk about. What makes my story so unique, so different?

I do. My background does. My experiences does.

I never thought that I would be homeless. Not just homeless, but experience  homelessness more than once as a saved, single, female. Who only knew church. I wasn’t brought up in a worldly household. I am paternal grandparents deep in this culture. A preacher’s/Assistant Pastor’s daughter. A close knit family structure. Two parent household. Entire family at some point active and serving within the church. Can you understand the culture clash?

I didn’t know the streets or the world. I was sheltered from both.

My upbringing didn’t say so, the culture that I grew up in didn’t say so, my family life didn’t say so. My associates didn’t say so, my circles didn’t say so.

I could even see or justify if I wasn’t saved or wanted to be in the streets, or wanted to live a street life. There’s nothing out here that I want. If I was unsaved and wanted to be in the streets and live a street life, I wouldn’t have to worry too much about a place to live or being homeless. The world loves it’s own.

I experienced and am experiencing a complete culture clash

Now, I can add, homeless during a world emergency that requires social distancing and self quarantine due to a virus.

Does it mean that God loves me any less, no. Does it mean that I have done something wrong, no. Does it mean that I needed money, no. (I found this out.) I found out via someone else who shared publicly on her Facebook Page or Facebook account, who found out via a Bishop who she did not name, the reason for homelessness. It’s not what we automatically think, finances or financial. It’s much more deeper than money. Broken relationships is the reason for homelessness.
