Shannon Giovacchini

Shannon is an example of the ‘new face’ of homelessness as at one point, she owned multiple houses and through a series of tragic events and bad luck, lost everything.  She was not from a low income family so to her shock, she found herself sleeping in shelters.   She’d given up on life and even considered suicide – and only decided against it because she couldn’t bring herself to traumatize the train conductor.  She then met a DST team member and started volunteering with the team.  She is now a manager at Downtown Streets Team and helps many other people in similar situations.
