Lynne Guensler, who has been homeless since May 2015, relaxes at Land Park with her cat, Fluffy, on Tuesday, March 22, 2016. Guensler, 55, lived out of her green four-door Mazda with her 21-year-old son and pet cat for a few months and just recently received temporary shelter for 30-days until she can find housing for herself. But finding affordable housing isn’t easy, she says, when she only has $900 a month between herself and her son.
