Debra Townsend is proof that homelessness can happen to anybody.
Debra, 67, had done everything right in life. She was a wife, homeowner and successful businesswoman, with ample savings and investments.
“I was a typical suburban housewife, with a full and rich life,” said Debra, who spent years living in New Brighton, with careers as a securities broker, jewelry executive, and bridal consultant.
Less than a year ago, Debra found herself on the steps of The Salvation Army Harbor Light Center in Minneapolis, homeless.
How could this be?
