Summary
"At the beginning of the homelessness epidemic in the 1980s, Josephine Ensign was a young, white, 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 coworkers, 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"--back cover
