Kandiyohi County drawing attention to homelessness
Teri Schulte couldn't be happier to have a home. "It would've been a very cold winter in my car," said Schulte, a soft-spoken woman.
The 35-year-old had slept on friends' couches, stayed at the Shelter House in Willmar and lived for a time in her car with her four cats.
"Imagine me and four cats and a litter box in a car," said Schulte, who had been "chronically homeless" for nearly five years.
"It was rough," said Schulte. "It was demeaning."
