Keanakay Scott, a member of the Alexandria House community, wrote an open letter to people who are against homeless shelters in their neighborhoods. When she aged out of the foster care system, Keanakay found herself with no one to rely on and no life skills; thus she became chronically homeless for the next 10 years.
Read her open letter here. Keanakay has also been featured on Fox News and Spectrum 1 News. Keanakay also recently published a memoir chronicling her experience in the foster care system. Buy a copy here!
