Raelynn Butcher is an advocate for homeless people and resides in Marysville in Yuba County. She writes, “I work with homeless people 24/7 and I care deeply for them. I attend all meetings at City Hall and I’m a member of the Consortium of Care for both Yuba and Sutter County. Some homeless people here call me their mayor.”
Never think that you too can’t become homeless. You could have everything — a house, a car, a family, a job — and overnight lose it all, God forbid. No one should ever close their eyes and say, “It will never happen to me.” Because it could happen and then what would you do?
