Not quite homeless in Providence, the way it is.

For rent in Prov, unfurnished studio apartment, only $580 per month, just off a main street. Well used refrigerator and microwave included. No stove. No closets or kitchen cabinets. Ancient radiator heat but thermostat controlled from superintendent’s unit.  Must share one bathroom with 3 other units.

This is Danielle’s world, but at least she is not homeless anymore. She shares this space with her mother. A friend helps make the rent. She was eager for me to take pictures. She wanted people to see how she is making it in America.  She is looking for something better. She can always hope. 

This is the way it is for her and her mom, three days after Thanksgiving, 2014.
