New York When 100,000 Homes Campaign volunteers met Elaine, she had been sleeping on the streets of Denver for 10 years. She used to hide under cardboard boxes to avoid the threat of violence. One night, while she slept, an angry passerby kicked her in the face. With the help of Campaign partner Denver's Road Home, Elaine and her dog, Stinker, moved into an apartment. Today, she can lock her doors and finally sleep in peace.
