Elaine didn't live on the street. For the first three weeks, she slept on a friend's couch, and her daughter used a sleeping bag on the floor. Each morning, she rolled it up and tucked it behind the couch, setting her teddy bear on top. When Elaine's friend gently told her she needed her space back, Elaine called an old work mate and asked if she could visit for a few days. When her welcome there wore out – as she knew it would eventually – she didn't know what to do.
