From the American Dream to Homelessness and Back Again


Rita Utley had it all -- the American Dream. But when she found herself sick in a strange town, her world changed. Rita survived six months of living in her van after she lost her home. Once she came into Providence House, Rita earned her GED, nearly 40 years after quitting school. Now she has graduated from the Providence House program and has regained a new, independent life.
