From the beginning, my work was devoted not to despair but rather to the courage and imagination with which people face adversity, the ways they manage to build makeshift structures and find warmth and community. I try to show that the term 'homeless' is a misnomer that blinds us from seeing how people preserve their sense of home and identity while struggling for survival at the margins of society.

I waited a few minutes, then yelled 'Glass House.' Silence. I yelled again. Suddenly, a thick chain came hurtling down. I had the keys. I found my way to the second floor and a dimly lit, unheated room where about thirty-five people between the ages of seventeen and twenty-two were conducting what they called a 'house meeting.'
