As a part of the Bay Area news #SFHomelessProject KQED News featured a mini project called Homeless U. This project featured three homeless college students and the struggles they face within their daily lives.
Brittany Jones is an Oakland-based Laney College student, and is also homeless.
The images below are from three articles. The first following her through her day as she travels from school to her storage, onto Bart where she often sleeps, and finally to a friends house where she will be spending the night.
The second article was a follow-up with Jones after a reader reached out and offered to pay for housing for her while she attends school.
The third article was an extended follow-up with Jones after she had been living in her apartment for 6 months. Once she was safely housed attending school, work, and enjoying a more stable life was tremendous change for Jones.
