I also talked with T. She has a boyfriend in Neillsville and reports having a place to stay there. T cannot leave Eau Claire until she takes care of a personal matter. She has health issues, but is hesitant to take medication due to concerns of side effects of the mefications.
Another women who is obese and has back and leg pain talked to me for a few minutes. She walks with a walker and says she is being treated for her legs. She can only walk so far, before she is out of breath and has to stop and rest.
Women on the street for any length of time are so susceptible to being abused sexually and emotionally. We always ask the women if they are safe and their response is usually yes and that they can take care of themselves.
Pray that the lives of the homeless may be turned around and for the work of this ministry.
