After hours of interviews and soul-searching questions, over a dozen courageous people were able to share their stories of overcoming homelessness and other trauma for the book "Sacred Shelter: Thirteen Journeys of Homelessness and Healing." Robin Shannon, host of Fordham Conversations, was joined by three women who helped make this book happen. Deborah Canty and Sophia Worrell were once homeless in New York. They survived sexual abuse and domestic violence, and went on to graduate from a life-skills program and now use their stories to inspire others. Susan Greenfield, Ph.D., professor of English at Fordham University, served as the book's editor. Listen here.
