My Battle with Homelessness (student speaker)
Start Date: 11/16/2017Start Time: 11:00 AM
End Date: 11/16/2017End Time: 12:15 PM

Event Description
Bristol Community College student, Chelsey Carr, will speak about her personal battle with homelessness during her adolescent and early adult years. She will offer an inside look at the harsh reality that is homelessness. From sleeping on park benches, to hiding out in motel rooms, she will take us on a journey through her past, telling of dangers faced, obstacles conquered, and what it took to overcome her situation.

Chelsey Carr, at age 25, is attending her first semester at BCC. Chelsey graduated B.M.C. Durfee High School in 2010. Any idea of attending college after graduation was put aside when she was thrown out of her home at age 17. She roamed the streets and resided in a local shelter, trying to get on her feet. Today, she is working full time, attending Bristol Community College, maintaining a home, and most importantly, living a happy, healthy life.
