I am The Homeless Housewife.
There are dozens of mothers with children who, like my family,
to this day remain homeless…..
Yet nobody can tell by looking at us…We don’t act, dress, or smell the part.
We work, go to school, go to the grocery store, walk through the mall, and drive in cars….
…just like 98% of the population.
You may have walked right past us and not even known it.
We are actors, invisible, like chameleons.
We have the tendency to blend right in, not on purpose, or to trick or fool you.
Simply because that is who we are.
We hold onto every shred of dignity and pride that we have left….
because essentially that is all we have left.
See, there are many homeless individuals like me…
We will remain invisible.
Not because we choose to, but for a variety of reasons.
We are the unseen.
We are in hopes of a miracle.
We hold in our hearts a simple wish that remains ungranted…..
a wish to go ‘HOME’.
Though we have made every effort to seek assistance, we are unsuccessful.
We remain not helped, and not assisted, and we get rejected by every
‘”homeless advocate” agency in town.. .
And these agencies do not offer alternative solutions for us.
Instead, they allow us to walk out their door with utter defeat and
We don’t want to be noticed, so…we remain the unseen homeless…
victims of circumstance, who damn well make sure we do not portrait anything but the
quintessential perfect family to any unsuspecting onlooker.
Because hell will freeze over before anyone discovers our dark, dirty little secret.
We have been passed over repeatedly, with not even a blink.
We want you to know, we are right outside your door.
And though you sit in your cozy little house,
we need you to realize that you may be next.
They say that the only thing that’s sure, is that nothing is sure.
One more piece of advice…..
If you seek assistance from your local homeless service providers, one thing is certain….
