Home. The idea no doubt resonates differently for each one of us. But it’s common theme is stability: a place to start from every morning, and return to every evening. A place to recharge and create a plan–a vision for the future we hope to make a reality. But what if that place of stability–given an unexpected loss of a job, an accident or a significant illness, say–can no longer be sustained? With no place to call our own, where do we go, and to whom do we turn?
