Catching Homelessness: A Nurse's Story of Falling Through the Safety Net
Catching Homelessness: A Nurse's Story of Falling Through the Safety Net | Josephine Ensign
3 posts | 3 read | 3 to read
At the beginning of the homelessness epidemic in the 1980s, Josephine Ensign was a young, white, Southern, Christian wife, mother, and nurse running a new medical clinic for the homeless in the heart of the South. Through her work and intense relationships with patients and co-workers, her worldview was shattered, and after losing her job, family, and house, she became homeless herself. She reconstructed her life with altered views on homelessness and on the health care system. In Catching Homelessness, Ensign reflects on how this work has changed her and how her work has changed through the experience of being homeless providing a piercing look at the homelessness industry, nursing, and our country s health care safety net."

Amazing fall color on my sedum and a book that I hope is amazing. Today's reading promises to be depressing but with great fall blue skies, hard to be too down.

Post-run drink and a post-run read. This is the school wide book at my graduate school this year, and I can already tell it's going to hit hard. Thank goodness for beer.
