"You should not be on the streets, and I know there's a lot of other people and I wish we could take care of everyone, and I saw you on TV. This woman was a chef, and had everything and now she's at risk of being assaulted nightly out on the streets. I wanna do what we can to get you off the streets. So would, what all do you need to get you going? JV asked.

"I could sustain a rent of a thousand dollars a month, I need a first and a last and I need to find a spot," Jane answered.
